Oscar, the Artist

Oscar has decided to try his hand at painting.  He had to rig some scaffolding from the tree to be able to reach his canvas.  Evidently, it is not easy being an orple.  Meanwhile, now that Olivia has learned to read, she is reading her books, and enjoying being outside on such a beautiful day.

Oscar is very talented, it seems.

    • Thank you, Francine. Oscar has been pushing me to show off his newly found talent. He kept on bugging me to post his work, so there you have it. I’m so happy that you stopped in to check out his work. Of course, so are the orples. 🙂


  1. Oh Marcy, this is absolutely adorable! Love how you put the canvas in the lovely photo of those beautiful horses and the Orples! Absolutely gorgeous! You have the best talent hon. 🙂


    • Sonel, you flatter me, too much. I’m glad you liked this silly little drawing. I was obviously playing with the orples when this thought came to mind. Thanks as always for dropping in to check us out. 🙂


    • Olivia reads everything she can get her hands on. She wants to know it all! She is very inspirational to the children, or so she is supposed to be.


        • I am trying to instill encouragement and little life lessons into all of my books. Having children and grandchildren, myself, it alarms me at how much violence children are subjected to in movies, and some books. So, I try to keep it fun and inspiring. Reading is so important, I figured if Olivia was gung-ho, she might be a good role model to follow.


    • Oscar is a character. He’s not into reading much, to Olivia’s dismay, but he seems to have found other talents to compensate. These little characters are like day and night. But they say, variety is the spice of life. I’m sure Oscar is delighted that you admire his painting. 😉 In the meantime, Olivia, Oscar, and I can agree … we appreciate your visit. 🙂 Have a wonderful day!


  2. Why, it’s greased lightning! Well, not exactly, but close.

    I picked up on something this time. That’s a picture in a picture! Well, looks like the Orples have themselves a little competition in the cleverness department. 😉

    To echo a common sentiment – pretty durned neat idea (and execution!), Marcy.



    • Shhhhhh,Kate … don’t tell Oscar that, he’s so proud of himself for his accomplishment. Thanks for the kudos, Kate. I’m trying to figure out ways to include the orples in some of my posts, so people know why I named my blog what I did. And of course, in the hopes, people will get curious, and buy lots of books, and I’ll be able to eat. LOL. Pretty slick, huh?


    • Thank you, Erin. I need to find the time to work them into my posts more often, so people know what orples are, when they visit (other than the title of my blog). 🙂 Thanks for visiting. I’m glad you’re enjoying my little orangey pals.


    • Illustrations held me back for the longest time, then I decided to just draw my own stuff. I like being able to control my work and time schedules, not to mention, I can draw what I want, and manipulate the illustrations to fit the storyline. Good luck with your book. Don’t let the illustrations stop you. If you can’t, or don’t want to, do your own drawings, I’m sure there are artists available to see you through. I think in my case, I’m too much of a loner to rely on others. Thank you for stopping by for a visit, and of course, for the kudos on my orples. I assure you, they love the attention. 😉
