2015 Catalog Cover Art Competition Winner

Ida Faraghan, Cinnaminson NJ

I began watercolor painting at age 65. With no formal training, I struggled with the art, until I found a local art teacher, Rosemary Hutchins. Extremely talented, giving, and sharing of her craft. She was my inspiration to continue to improve my love of watercolor.

I have been painting for 21 years, and still learning. I continue my love for sheep in my watercolors.

Happily married for 66 years. Five fantastic, loving, talented children, that presented us with 12 beautiful grandchildren; 4, about to be 5, wonderful great-grandchildren.

I am overwhelmed and honored to be part of the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival, that I have attended for many years.

Since we weren't able to have a Breed Display Barn this year, some of you might be interested in this webinar that the American Sheep Industry Association recently sponsored.

"In this webinar we explore the amazing diversity of heritage sheep breeds found in America and how many are making a remarkable comeback as interest grows in small scale shepherding and in natural fiber arts. We discuss the decades long effort to bring rare sheep back from the brink of extinction and current efforts to develop new markets for their products. Learn about the conservation work and then listen to experiences of several rare breed sheep farmers as they recount the journey they have undertaken with their amazing sheep breeds"
