The third entry in the “Michigan Orange” series, making its appearance. It took way longer than it should have to do this painting, even considering its rather large size. That’s what happens when you think you have a simple plan and then it doesn’t work out. This painting was a fighter, resisting me at every turn. I must have gone over the sky at least three times, and maybe even more for the trees and the field. This painting just didn’t want to be born. It was one of those which many years ago I would have simply tossed–but I have learned that there is a lot of value in pushing on through to the success side. For one thing, you learn a lot! And for another, it’s a great feeling of reward to see that you won!
Charm, showing off the only braids that will stay in her endless mane.
