I am still concentrating on my commission. This one is a lot of work but it is coming along nicely.
I want to remind everyone this weekend is my June Open Backyard. Bring a friend and stop in! Let everyone know, spread the word, everyone is welcome.
June 11-13: Andy Smiths Backyard is Open
4 N Spruce St. Lititz, PA
Open 10 to 4 Closed if it is raining but I am expecting a beautiful weekend.
Original Paintings and Prints will be on display and I will be demonstrating.
Question of the Day: Do you follow trends in decoration or use the color of the year?
NO! I do not even pay attention. A trend becomes popular for a while and then the next best thing comes along. I do not even know what the latest color is. I simply paint, I am looking for longevity. I have a solid color pallete, I do not add the latest colors, I mix whatever color I need. I am not interested in remaking myself every year. I do not change my style or subject matter to try to fit into an area. I am not painting beachy pastel things just to fit into Florida. I believe traditional subjects in realistic style are always in fashion. Luckily my clients agree! I have been blessed to simply paint what is in me.
