Finished Lititz paintings...

I finished two pieces for the Lititz theme art show
at Lititz Framing & Fine Arts in October. 
Now I can concentrate on my open house painting.

This weekend I am showing with some of the best
craftsman.  I truly think they are at the top of their
fields, masters.  I am honored to be included.  It is
