Frank F. Penney, WIP

Frank F. Penney
I would love to say that it was because the panel used was not taking the paint and gave me mega problems, or maybe, knowing that my grand children are coming, just couldn't pull it together.  But what I must say,  to quote the West Point Cadets   "No Excuses Sir".. 

My little chicks are coming tonight, so there will be no painting or posting for the next few days.  I will wish you all Happy Painting, and I will look forward to your post.

Oh, forgot to mention, this past weekend I did a show at the Brush Barn in Smithtown and sold some work. It was great fun.


  1. I left a comment on the posting below, but it never appeared - do you have to approve it, Joan?

    I said how much I admired your work and, being an ex-boat-builder (Shipwright), I particularly liked this picture.

    My little chicks have grown up and are slow to produce great, great grand-chicks :0)

    Have fun!

    1. Hi John,

      Thank you so much for the kind words. No, I do not have to approve of the comments. I appreciate your visit. John, where does the time go? I enjoyed your comment on Out on a Limb. I laughed every time I thought about your words. Your work happens to be brilliant and I will be returning to your blog many times.

      All the best to you,
