So, just how slow can I go?

Little Jenny about half way to the finish line.

Little Jenny about half way to the finish line.

Yes, it’s painfully true. I have been a sluggard (is that a word?) the past couple of weeks. However, there has been progress. The background is done, just need to put the rest of the foreground in now that I’ve finished the front legs. Got some main and tail done too, and a bit of hindquarters. Hopefully the rest of it will just sort of roll off my brushes.

On another note…a historical “first”. I entered four of my Orange series landscapes in a show coming up at The Next Picture Show gallery in Dixon, Illinois (that’s about an hour west of Chicago). Up till now, these juried shows have always selected one or two of my multiple entries, but this time they picked all four. Astounded, yes, I am! In case you’re new to my blog, here are the four lucky entries:

"Michigan Orange Juice", oil on canvas, 36" wide x 30" high.

“Michigan Orange Juice”, oil on canvas, 30″ x 36″.


"Michigan Orange Bowl", oil on canvas, 24" x 36". Available on my website,

“Michigan Orange Bowl”, oil on canvas, 24″ x 36″.


"Michigan Orange Freeze"--oil on canvas, 46" x 36"

“Michigan Orange Freeze”–oil on canvas, 36″ x 46″


All done. I feel like I'm flying low when I look at this.

“Michigan Orange Frost”–oil on canvas, 26″ x 32″
