Herding Sheep, Habost
Ness, Isle of Lewis
acrylic on board, 25″ × 10″
print available

This peaceful scene depicts Habost, part of the crofting township of Ness.  The pace of life seems slower than the sheep being herded by this young lass herd to another croft.  Peat fires burn in the stoves of the huddled croft houses, rising in the late spring breeze and the constantly changing light.
