For He’s A Jolly Good Fellow, oil on canvas. 10″x12″.  Sold.

He looks a little surprised- you think?   I think it’s definitely a surprise party and he’s well chuffed.   I hope everyone is making the most out of summer.  Of late, I’ve been working on the book like a mad woman and growing things in the garden like red roses and pink peonies.   I’m slowly overcoming my fear of creepy crawlies- baby steps.   Tomorrow is the ‘super moon’ and I’m looking forward to cracking open a bottle of ‘Noble One’ with John and enjoying the sight before we run inside and watch the last episode of Mad Men- weep.   Aside from that I’ve been enjoying restaurant patios, gorging on fresh strawberries while watching films from the 70’s and early 80’s like ‘Klute’ and ‘Shoot The Moon‘, and trying to get my super white legs some sun as I don’t want to glow brighter than the super moon tomorrow night.

    Love the birthday bunting detail. It’s not a party without bunting! Hope you liked “Mad Men.” That final scene, that final look between father and daughter, is seared into my brain. Great way to end the season.

    Gosh I love your paintings!!!!! So I must have missed something….are you making a book of your work because I’m going to jump up for joy if you say yes!!!!! I have been hoping you would be doing that at some point 🙂 Also I really think that you should join Vine and Instagram so we can see your work in action and your cute Cavalier pup too!!!!! Let me know if you join , I’d love to follow! Take care Janet! Can’t wait to see what’s next!

    • Hi Nicolette,

      I am working on a book! It’s illustrated fiction- several stories/ fairy tales and vignettes that all intercept, but it’s not a children’s book. It’s a huge project and I’ve been working on it for about a year and I’m fairly certain it will be another two years before it’s completed- yikes! I will definitely provide some hints and clues about the content in the next year or so.

    Janet! I am so excited!!!! The book is going to be amazing!!!! Well worth the wait I’m sure even if it takes you another 2 years! 🙂 You are by far my favorite artist and its so fun being able to get lost in the stories you create within your paintings! I need to own more!!!! 🙂
