Fall Original

 After making the decision not to make a print this year with all the cancelled shows and covid, I finished this painting and Linda fell in love with it and now has decided it needs to be printed!  So we are going for it!  We are keeping a very small edition of only 50 prints.  It is at the printer now and we should have it by the end of the month.  Meanwhile if you are positive you want one, you can send an email and we will put your name on the next print number in order of requests.  However if you ask me to hold one for you, it is a firm commitment you are taking it!  Meanwhile IF you are interested in the original... framed 17x21  $2800.  
Original is SOLD!     Prints are available

Prints:  the image is 12x16

unframed: $50.00

Day 12

I am expecting Monday to be rained out... Call or email before you come to be sure,  but if it is raining I will NOT be setting up.  That gives you only two more days to shop in the backyard. 
Open Tuesday and Wednesday from 10 to 5.


Over the past 12 days I finished two fantastic paintings.  

This one sold while I was painting it!  
Crescent Moon   14x18    $825



Next was a still life from our sales table, it just glows, I am so happy with it.
Linda is thinking about printing this one.
"Fall"  17x21  (not priced!)

6 MORE DAYS...


My how things have changed... at our normal annual open house we served wonderful hors d'oeuvres and wine... this Covid year we are offering bagged snacks, bottled water and cans of soda... and sanitizer!   I will say the backyard theme is working perfectly, only 2-4 people are here at a time, as one comes in one leaves.  It is giving us time to chat.  There is plenty of space and fresh air,  and the weather has been perfect.  We have 6 more days to welcome you.   Daily 10 to 5.  But remember if it rains we are cancelled.  You may call or email if you need to confirm the weather.  Held in our backyard at 4 N Spruce St.  Lititz PA .  See you soon and feel free to bring a friend.

I am included in a virtual show...  9 paintings are included in this show... Click here to view.

Open all week...


Starting day 5 of our backyard open house.  There are 3 tents filled with paintings and prints waiting for you.  Plenty of room to walk around and browse.  We will be open every day from 10 to 5 until 10/14.  We made the show two weeks long to spread out the crowds and it has worked.  We have had a steady flow of people but only a few at a time.  This also gives us a chance to chat with everyone.  The weather has been wonderful so plan your day in Lititz and we hope to see you soon.

A weeks update...






































Only one week to go.... if possible, plan to come during the week to help spread out the crowds.

We have been busy here at the Smith house... painted our front porch which took all of last week.  Not for Open House but simply because it needed it!  


We also had a custom railing installed at the entrance to the back yard.
 Here is Bob from Steel Expressions installing the first part.


Linda has a thing for circles and was able to include them in the railing.  We are very happy with Bobs job and willing to share his info if you need metal work.


We also were lucky to be able to spend 2 nights at the beach with friends.  Now its back to work!
