This is from Williamsburg, VA.  He was giving carriage rides and I liked his red coat.  I love doing portrait work, I am not as skilled as I would like to be but it is its own calling.  I just do enough to satisfy myself.  I had fun with this one.

We celebrated Christmas with our god-daughter (God sent!)  Rashetta.  She is living in Portland OR so we do not see her very often.   She came on Friday and we went out for dinner with my brother Carl, his wife Beth and our friend Joan to Lemoncello in Chester Springs.  They all watched her grow up and all have spent some time traveling with her.


Saturday our friends the Woodruffs spent the day with us.  They played a large role in her support, and mentoring her college years.  You know, it takes a village!

A great start to our Holiday season.  Loved having her home a few days.

2022 Landscape #28

mini original watercolor  $225.

One more from Custer State Park in SD.  

I plan to start my annual Holiday paintings, posting the first one on Sunday night.  To help get in the mood we went tree hunting.  Linda grew up on a tree farm, so when I get her out to a field she gets excited and we end up walking the WHOLE field... maybe twice, I think she touches and smells almost every one, and the BEST tree is always in the back 40!  I cut this down and dragged it in, portraying my best mountain man!
