There's Always One shows an incident at Danby Duck bridge where a Ewe decides to take a different route. Sheep can be contrary animals.  I remember watching my grandfather spending half an hour cutting a Ewe loose from a Bramble thicket and when released she jumped straight back in again. I heard some words that I had not heard before.

Oil on canvas 50 x 50 £475 This painting can be seen at the Heather Simone gallery, Pately Bridge    The sheep are drawn to the grass at the side of the road and stand and stare as the shepherd comes past. They remind me of the crowds on an alpine climb as the Tour comes past.

 Driving Ewes along Bilsdale past Billy Brass's. Oil on canvas 70 x 50 £525  I spent many weekends camping in Bilsdale, my school had a converted cottage used as an outdoor centre. We climbed in Scugdale which is over the hill on the right. Our centre was called Clough and it is situated at the top of the trees underneath the mast. When I see Bilsdale mast lit up on a night it transports me back to those days.
