Switched it up today and went with a still life.


Family update: I brought Linda home at noon today and I am playing caretaker.  Going ok.  She is hurting a bit and finding a grove at home.  Realized lying flat in bed feels different than a hospital bed. Since the doc used glue she has no bandage so she took a shower tonight. She's sporting a nice shade of purple
We were told she will feel worse for 4 days as the block wears off then will start feeling better.  Today was only day one!

Broad street Lititz after our little snow storm.

Since I started late with posting Holiday I am going to post through the weekend, so make sure you check daily!  Don't miss any.

Family Update: Today was Linda's surgery day.  She has a new hip!!
Doing well; walked a few times (out of bed 4hrs after surgery!)  ate (food pretty good), took a nap.  Everyone at the Surgery Center in Limerick Pa is wonderful. They are super attentive, she has a big private room (only 12 beds) I can stay with her.  Dr. Deirmengian is fantastic.  He said the next 4 days will get worse (in time to be sent home!). After that it's to be better each day.  Thank you all for your prayers and kind notes.  You are all the best clients and friends a person can have...

Check my website.  You may visit the studio over the holidays, just give me a call 717-627-3383 to make sure I'm here.  We are also still filling shipping orders but don't wait much longer!

Family Update:  Right after Open House we took a one week cruise with our friends the Hildebrands.  We were celebrating their anniversary and wanted a bit of a rest for Linda.  We sailed on the Norwegian Breakaway from NY to Bahamas.  Here we are on Cocoa Beach, FL

The next big thing on our plate is Linda is having hip replacement surgery on December 14th and then three months later a knee replacement.  She inherited bad joints. 
So I'm in charge in the studio, actually, I am totally in charge!!

We are open Friday!

This is it, we are out of time!  Our doors open Friday at 2pm!  The cooking is finished, the table is set.  I can personally tell you the sangria is pretty darn tasty!  I did a last minute inspection for spider webs (we have a very old house!).  We do have cats but the boys will be banned to the upstairs room, the house has been vacuumed and wiped but if you are allergic I'm giving fair warning,  I can safely say there is something for everyone, from a bookmark to a large original painting.
So... we are ready.

6 Days Till Open House

Time is going fast!  I picked up 39 more frames this morning.  Bought all new light bulbs for my panel lights, replaced 2 bulbs in the studio overheads.  All three overhead lights were cleaned (no bugs laying in them, very important!).  Refrigerator scrubbed and ready for all the snacks.  Linda finished updating 280 address changes.  Rug laid on the newly enclosed porch and panels are up.
Linda also added the paintings to the website but NO early sales, you have to wait till 11/17!
Packed the van for this weekends show at Spooky Nook.

Here are a few more paintings for you to put on your wish list.  These are both mini originals.

Only 9 Days Till Open House...

I am seeing a bit of panic in Linda's eyes... we are down to 9 days till Open House.    Her  "to do" list looks to me like its on track.  I got the porch tarp hung.
















I picked up 57 more frames today so there is still some framing going on.  Linda picked up the wine on Saturday.  I hear there is definitely a Fall Sangria being served.  Menu is complete and I saw a grocery list.  There is a lot happening here.   Meanwhile I am still painting and my cutoff is Sunday night.   Here is another glimpse of what will be waiting for you.




I have one more show for the season. It is local so that makes it easy.   Booth #100
