A days painting in Doesburg, Holland

A lovely, strange and surely wet day (in the start)
in Doesburg. Lovely because I maneged to paint two
paintings today, strange because I run into a field with
sheeps which many of them where attack by dogs so it
seemed and where bleeding to death at least 4 where
already dead,several others where injured, it was quiete
a slaughter I called the police and during my break I
discovered that two sheep had been put down by a veterinarian , ... 
While I biked back home in the afternoon some sheep's
still where bleeding and laying around, ... strange!
