?Shepherd?s Flock? is an original pastel drawing done by the visionary artist L. Copelleny. This quaint scene depicts a shepherd leading his flock down a rich, earthen toned, country road that is lined with trees that sway and bend in the wind. It appears to be a gorgeous, sunny, summer day with wispy, white clouds floating by in the bright, blue sky. There are some birds flying overhead that are calling to one another, keeping the shepherd and his flock company on their journey. This bucolic scene has been done on a textured paper that adds a distinction to the piece that wouldn?t otherwise exist. The strokes that have been created with the pastels are swift, and in some instances, done to generate patches of brilliant color. This creates an awesome juxtaposition of color and form, leaving the viewer to wonder which one is more dependent on the other. The composition itself was set up to lead the viewer back into the picture, following the shepherd to his unknown destination. This impressive piece has been beautifully double matted with the same sort of hues found in the drawing. The top mat is a medium colored golden tan with a white beveled edge, and the bottom mat is a deep golden tan with a black beveled edge, which creates a striking contrast between the picture plane and the mat and the two mats themselves. The frame that encases this lovely work of art is a deep walnut colored wood with carved grooves on the outer edge, which very effectively sets off the darker tones ...
