I Want to be a Star

This mouse is recklessly climbing a star magnolia tree. It is precarious, but who can resist wanting to be a star?
This little painting is called "I Want to be a Star" though my kids call it "Mouse Butt".
It is oil on panel and measures a small six inches square.


  1. You are the star!!!

    Wish you a nice springday!

  2. I was going to say that :-)

    You most certainly are.
    What a gift to be able to let your hands say what your mind thinks. That clear style you have developed turns your paintings into a long deep drink for their viewers.

    I am surprised that you are not more widely known. Name up in lights and all that. The world doesn't know what it is missing.

  3. Just gorgeous, Jean! Wish I had that one hanging in my greenhouse...
