The Shepherd

Here is another one of my drawings. It is called The Shepherd, for reasons I need not explain.

It is a bit different from my other ones, in a few ways, actually. First, it is in an open field, my pictures are always in forests. And second: his clothes. He is wearing a simple tunic and sandals. The men in my drawings are always wearing long-sleeved shirts, pants, boots and sometimes a jerkin, and, from time to time capes. Basically just very medieval. But I like this picture very much. It is one of my favorites.

Perhaps, 'tis partly because I like shepherds so much. I admire so greatly the qualities needed to be a shepherd. I have herd that that sheep are the second stupidest animals there are (The first being turkeys, so I've been told.), so he must be very patient, and extremely watchful, as they will eat poisonous plants. He is also very gentle and caring, and strong. A man is only
truly strong when he is first gentle. I could be wrong or something...

...but I doubt it.

Have a glorious day.

Note: I actually posted this in the 15th, but, due to the fact that Blogger is dysfunctional from time to time, I had to say that it was the 14th in order to publish the post.

And you are right about a man being gentle and strong. I know an excellent example. ;)
