Drawing of a shepherd in an Eastern Turkish village
DAPPER SHEPHERD
Dapper Shepherd at Harmantepe  -©2016 TriciVenola — What the well-dressed shepherd shall wear on a rainy day in the mountain village: Biblical shepherd’s crook, copious umbrella, rifle, cigarette and neon green tennis shoes. A friend of Ridvan’s, it was his flock we stopped for at Harmantepe, and I got this drawing. The sheep look like troops behind a general. I love this drawing.

HAPPY SHEPHERD
“Happy to be a shepherd” in Karaseyh Köy -30 April -©2016 TriciVenola He dropped out of school- said he’d rather be a happy shepherd than study. He’s ten. — This was relayed to me by a dismayed Ezra. The kid refused to learn to read, even, and his parents allowed him to leave. But he and the sheep do look happy!

The Aqueduct at Süphan

A shepherd: the Aqueduct at Asagi Süphan -©2016 TriciVenola  — He leaped up on the very edge of the ancient aqueduct and harangued the sheep, while all around him was glory. He did it just as I had gotten to that place in the drawing, as though it had been planned. We are in A Suphan, where project patron Celal Ögmen grew up, and he particularly asked me to draw the aqueduct. This took about an hour and a half to draw, sitting on the old stones while chickens strutted nearby. That’s Lake Van out there, and this aqueduct originally ran all the way down to it, about 4000 years ago.
