Illustration Friday: Farm

Woolgathering

Whew! Just got this one done under the wire for Illustration Friday's word this week, Farm. My idea came from the word woolgathering. I stumbled across this expression in a book I was reading and thought it rather funny! I had never heard that word used before!

Dictionary.com shows the meaning of woolgathering as "1.)indulgence in idle fancies and in daydreaming; absentmindedness, and 2.) gathering of the tufts of wool shed by sheep and caught on bushes." Now you know.

Woolgathering is paper collaged onto a painted background. I added a few paint details, then digitally photographed and added shadow and light details in Photoshop.
