Description I painted this painting late in the summer at the local university sheep pens. The sheep would lie down under the big oak trees and whenever someone would walk up they would walk up the hill hoping for food.
Kris Mitchell, Oregon Member Since May 2009 Artist Statement I have been making art for more than 40 years. Fueled by a profound love of the natural world, my creation of art comes from a driving force to show the sacred landscape that surrounds me in all its complexity. I am endlessly searching for ways to express the visions in my soul. Art is the language I speak; color is my voice, design my words. Visual conceptions become my sermons. Hues forms and textures randomly intermix, unify, and commingle to give the common-place a sense of spirituality on my canvas.
