THE WOODCHUCK’S PORTRAIT.

Sit still, Mr. Woodchuck,

As still as can be,

Till the picture is finished

And then you shall see.

.

It is not every woodchuck

Who has such a chance

As this set before him,

His worth to enhance.

    1. Well, he is a groundhog, and it seems they don’t like to peek out of their burrow in the Spring. This poor little guy is up and exposed on the chair.

      I thought groundhogs were bigger? Experts?

  1. Until now, I’d always thought of a woodchuck as being a bird! Is a woodchuck really a groundhog?

    This is quite an odd illustration. There’s a keen eye for detail on display but what on earth is going on with the shading?

    1. It is sort of a lumpy illustration – the little girl looks very odd. Yes, a woodchuck is a groundhog (I didn’t know that either). I didn’t notice the shading – maybe that is what sort of bothered my eye.

      SO HAPPY you are back!
