Birdhouses...
Another little landscape from the backyard of a client and friend from Williamsburg, Va.  We often show with the craftsman that make these birdhouses, in fact we own one!  So it was a surprise to see two in our friends backyard.

We had coffee with Lititz friends and their house was a treasure trove of photo ops for me.  This is my first.  I like the angle, looking down, it changes the shapes of the objects.  I hand draw everything so with this angle it requires really studying everything.  I know several people that own the white chicken dish!

Linda continues to progress.  She is at 4 weeks today.  She has been walking with her cane, around the block = 4 blocks.

Commission finished!

I was given a unique commission.  Paint a teapot.  14x18"  I was to do whatever I thought worked... 
Just use a teapot.  Oh, and his favorite color is orange.  So I called on my friend Amy to help design a still life.  The teapot is the focal point but a bowl with a bit lighter shade of orange balanced with lemon yellow seems perfect.  A harmonious balance of color, a study in shapes, strong reflections on the counter...  I nailed it!  My client loves it!
Doesn't get better than that.

This little landscape is from the backyard of a client and friend from Williamsburg, Va.
Back in the 1980’s she let us stay at her house while showing in Williamsburg.  We visited back in May and I took a few photos from her fantastic back yard.

This Saturday I am venturing out to a local show, leaving Linda with a caretaker, she is definitely not able to show for a while.

2018 Still Life #30

6x4” original watercolor.   $275

I am working on a commission and used this as a
study.

Update on Linda... day 15.   I think she is doing fantastic.
Down to just Tylenol for pain, that said...still hurts!
She is sitting out on the porch for a few hours every day,  she
is able to walk one block and back, using her walker.
With a bit of work she has 90 degree bend.   Just resting and healing.
Thank you for all the cards and prayers!

2018 Landscape #6

6x4” original watercolor.     $250.

This is a perfect little Lancaster County Landscape.
I like how your eye fills in, I painted a small corner of
a barn, a part of the road... but you have all this wonderful
distant view.

Do I even need to say where this is from?
Yes, Williamsburg, VA!
We were there in early May and it had been freshly painted
