Raymond Raccoon has wandered into a very fine apple orchard this morning and found an especially yummy treat. He can’t believe his luck.
Now he’s got to get that apple down to the creek to wash it up before he can take it back home to his hungry family.

I've be busy with the oil paints again. I have a love/hate relationship with them. I love to paint with them, and I love the way they look when I have finished. But I hate how long it takes for them to dry. But I guess that's just the way it is.
