Open House time!


We are in full Open House mode here at the Smith Studio!  Invites are here and ready to put in the mail next week.  The new print arrived and is signed and numbered and ready for framing.  I'll share that next week.  The new mini Holiday print is also here and ready for framing.  All the mats are cut for both prints.  Frames are coming weekly.  Glass is coming next week so I have a day for glass cutting coming up.   Extra stock is framed on the older prints.  I am sure Linda did more than this but its all I know about!  I did see the folder for the food was on the table so I am guessing she is working on the menu.  My job is to painting. I have several great larger paintings ready for framing.  Below are five new mini paintings I just finished.  I am not offering them for sale until Open House.  This is just to tease you!

I want to share a sweet story.

Last year the Simpson family purchased my print "Heritage"

This past weekend they came out to the Waterford Fair in VA and stopped at my booth and said hello.  This morning in my emails I received this message:

 I just wanted to let you know that our family was absolutely thrilled to find the real window that you had captured and painted in the print we have in our kitchen! We have been staring at this beautiful painting for the past year now, and it was so fun to stumble upon the real-life inspiration. What a fun surprise to end our day in Waterford.

Monday

I do not know where the past two weeks went.   I was shocked to see I have not posted since Sept. 18.
I have been working on larger paintings for my open house and we did a show in MA which meant we were gone 5 days.  Last week Linda kept me pretty busy getting ready for Porchwalk which was this past weekend.   Below is a photo of the girls who were exhibiting, sitting on our straw bale sofa!














I took on a large commission and have been spending the past few days getting the drawing approved and today I spent the day starting the washes.  Its a gift so I cannot share till mid October.  But it is going to take my full attention.

This weekend is a big show, Waterford Fair.   If you or any friends are in the Waterford (Leesburg) VA area this is a winner.  There is a lot going on in this small village so wear your comfortable walking shoes!

This weekend: October 6-7-8
