I am changing your PA Grand Canyon perspective. The previous paintings were from above looking down into the canyon. Now you are in the canyon looking up. This is from Pine Creek Rail Trail which we rode. The river was flowing beside us and the mountains loomed large in all their fall color.


Meanwhile I finished this fun painting.

Don't wait...

Linda was checking out our prints and I have 7 prints that have less than 20 left in the edition! Do you know how this works? Each year Linda watches what I paint and only chooses 1-3 paintings to be printed,.  All the other original paintings are sold as originals.  I declare and print an amount, I still do it the old fashion way and print the whole edition at one time. In the old days I printed 450 prints. Then I dropped to 200 and lately only 50. Once that printed amount are sold the edition is SOLD OUT! You can only get one from the secondary market at a higher price.

If any of these are on your wish list do not wait... go to my website and place your order or send me an email.

Check in...

In todays mail was a letter and refund check from a show in Chestertown MD.  They just cancelled for May 2021.  Hummm  its going to be another rocky year I am afraid.

 I did not have any time to paint today.  It was one of those days.  My cell phone was not letting me call out or receive calls.  I started my day at ATT where I bought it... they sent me to the Apple Store.  I was there for hours.  Bottom line, I needed to replace my 3 year old phone.  That was not in the budget!

Meanwhile at home the framing of two new commissioned painting was going on.  Here they are.















And this was done earlier as a retirement gift, all the objects had a very special meaning.  This painting was a huge challenge because it was totally out of my usual sweet spot.  I had to figure out how to place in all the objects inside the state of PA and make it look like a painting...

2020 Wellsboro Landscape #1


SOLD!
4x6" original watercolor - A Painting A Day
The Grand Canyon of PA
$150. (unframed)

After our 2 weeks of backyard Open House we decided to spend a few days away in Wellsboro, PA with our friends the Hildebrands.  We started our trip near the Jim Thorpe area, with a great 2 mile hike (walk in the woods!) to Hawk Falls in Albrightsville, PA.  The falls were beautiful and the smell in the woods was fantastic.  

Next stop was to the Boulder Field near Lake Harmony PA.   
WOW...  this did not even look real.


Now off to The PA Grand Canyon.  We found a perfect house to rent in Mansfield, PA.  And our 1st day started with the brakes failing on one of the bikes so we had to rent a bike for a few hours.  We rode 10 miles from Ansonia to Tiadaghton and back. Pine Creek Rail Trail,  this is a fantastic trail (62 miles one way!! we only did 10!)  it winds along the bottom of the canyon giving great views along the water.  So worth the trip!  The next day we hiked on the West Rim Trail and saw the canyon from the west (less traveled side).   Great hike and we were almost alone on the trail.  We then drove around to the east side where the main entrance and boardwalk is.  This offered a totally different view.
We had planned to ride again but with the bike issue we decided to simply come back next year.

 I keep saying fantastic but it was!  We were actually a week past peak leaf but still the yellows were...fantastic!  I think we had the last days of nice weather.  If you are up that way I need to share 2 places.  We filled up our gas in Wellsboro at Mystik Gas Station. The owner actually came out and pumped my gas and chatted to us and then cleaned the windshield...this is how its done, service at its finest.  We were so thrilled with the service.   Next is a hole in the wall restaurant in Mansfield. Cast and Crew... we actually did takeout here three times. We tried a meal, then some pizza and then burgers and salads.  The staff was kind and helpful and the meals were...wait for it...        fantastic!
We are back home and I am starting to paint the mountains. I really can't do the colors justice. Nature is perfect but I am giving it a try.

If you were interested in my latest print "Fall" there are only 20 prints left! Don't wait, email me and I will hold one for you.  I am proofing them tomorrow.
