I planted an apple tree last week. So far it looks like a dead stick. But in years to come it will flower with pink and white blossoms, green leaves and fragrant apples.

This little mouse knows to dream big and to work hard. She hasn't read Robbie Burns' poem "To a Mouse". Her best laid plans will not "gang agley" but will see fruition. Go mouse go!

This painting measures six inches by eight inches and is oil on panel.


  1. You can do it, little mouse! :)

  2. I like the dichotomy of purpose:
    "Am I going to take a bite now
    or roll it home first?"
