Call of love




Oilpainting on canvas 92 x 122 cm
This is a story in a song about a wolf and a sheep, love between them seems absurd but it happened. Love is love and its so simple. I got this inspiration from the Chinese song “a wolf fell in love with a sheep”.Wolf and sheep represent opposite personalities of humanity. As you can read about the story as you listen to the song which i attached to my blog. Hope you like it .
A fierce northerly wind was howling
Snow flakes were falling
Suddenly a gunshot boomed in the distance
This wolf had been severely wounded
But his luck saved him from death
A sheep had saved him
From then on, they made a commitment to each other that would span their past,
present and future lives
They exchanged each other's vows
The wolf said: "my love ,
Thank you so much for healing my wound ,
No matter how intense the stormy trials of our future will be,
I will be your shield"
The sheep replied that it went without saying
Because I fell in love with you
No matter how dangerous it will be beside you
I will be by your side
Like this, side by side, they happily wandered about
Like this, they sang together of their love
A wolf fell in love with a sheep and they were crazy for each other
Because each truly loved the other
It’s not absurd for a wolf to fall in love with a sheep
They said as long as they loved each other they knew where to go .

It’s wonderful for a wolf and a sheep to love each other .Because they broke through the walls of a stereotype .Together they traveled, arm in arm.
