Some words need to be spelled another way like the word shepherd. You would think that if you are talking about an ancient shepherd, it should be spelled shephard. It just has a nice biblical feel. But I have been informed by my in house proof reader, that it is indeed shepherd.
Jenniffer Wardell, the Associate Editor for the Davis County Clipper, had some nice things to say about the “New Art Center Exhibit Offers Dose of Holiday Cheer” Here are a couple of quotes about my art from her Wednesday Nov. 27, 2013 article. “The most traditionally heartwarming pieces feature Santa Claus getting friendly with the animal kingdom. Robert McKay’s warm cheerful Santa says hello to man’s best friend in “A Creature Was Stirring.” In Sherry Meidell’s adorable “Christmas Bears,” santa sneaks a teddy bear to two cubs that are far less drowsy than their hibernating mother.” And here is another comment about a little oil I have in the show: “Meidell portrays a different portion of the Biblical tale with “As Shepherds Watched,” a small, wonderfully human oil painting. Meidell captures both the shepherd and his sheep in what must be that first moment of curiosity, not yet fully aware of what that sudden light would mean.” Now my in house proof reader mentioned that I had misspelled shepherd on the title of my little oil and Jenniffer Wardell because she is the Associate Editor of the Davis County Clipper has spelled it right in the paper. If you would like to see the holiday show it will be at the Bountiful/Davis Art Center in Farmington until December 21st. And if you go you will see my creative spelling of shepherds – “As Shephards Watched”
