Check in...

We have a wonderful group of 9 friends that have been traveling together since our daughters wedding in 2009.  Sometimes its all of us and sometimes its whoever wants to go.  On Sunday, 8 of us are heading to Canada.  4 days in Montreal and 4 days in Quebec.  Going for that French feeling!  Lots planned so I will share when we get back.

No Blog posts till 6/24!

Today was my MRI, then our customary breakfast after a procedure.  Then a few errands. Tonight I am taking kid to the track for a little sprint practice.  All that to say no time to paint.

2024 Landscape #17


 mini original watercolor $225
A Lancaster County view from a bike ride.  I LOVE our landscape.

I enjoy when clients send me views of their Andy Smith Collection.  This one has 4 mini originals and a print.  Looks beautiful on the wall!

2024 Landscape #16


mini original watercolor  $225
While scouting what I wanted to paint for the Quick Draw I saw this view.  I think it is part of the Moravian complex.

The Lititz Quick Draw went well.  2 hours to start and finish a painting.  You sit outside and draw on site.  This is way out of my comfort zone.  Yes I paint outside at shows but I am using my own reference not sitting in front of it live.  I am a studio painter.  Plus I take hours on my paintings, even my mini paintings are 4-6 hours each.  This was 2 hours, I had to hustle and the overall style was much looser.  It is the Mueller House on Main Street.  AND as an extra bonus...it SOLD right away!

2024 Still Life #29


 mini original watercolor  $225

I love the color on this little pitcher.  From PennyPacker Mills in Schwenksville, PA

My latest commission was an anniversary gift and I may now show it... I am very pleased how it turned out.  The size is 18x14"  There was a lot of detail to squeeze into a small size.  If you are interested in a special painting,  contact me.


Plan ahead to Friday, June 7th for Lititz Quick Draw
I have 2 hours to start and finish a painting in Lititz.  I am scouting out my subject and let you know where you can find me.  You walk around town and watch and then the paintings are up for sale at the end of the day.  More details to follow.

2024 Still Life #28


mini original watercolor   $225

Another one from the Peter Wentz Farmstead in Worcester, PA. I modified this a bit; there was actually the most unusual smudges of paint on the walls, I left them off and I added a pear because I had one setting on my table (before I ate it!).
