Somerset Beauty

Somerset Beauty
Image:    17x 6"
Framed: 22x11"

While we were in Ohiopyle PA we drove around searching for covered bridges and looking at the beautiful country side of Somerset County.   Beautiful farmland,  and there is nothing like a red barn against the green landscape. 

I have my next commission drawing approved (after 2 tries!)  and I am starting to draw it on my watercolor paper.  This one is way out of my normal paintings.  It should be an illustration and it is testing me greatly...  I am doing everything I can to make my client happy...

Back in May we took our first "hike " in the woods and Linda spotted this beautiful Jack in the Pulpit.  The dark background makes it pop.

This was my July commission, it was a birthday present and I may now show it!
Framed 12x12
Keep me in mind for a special gift.

My very last show that was holding out has now announced their cancellation.  Fall Foliage in Bedford, PA held in October.  Heart of Lancaster in September is also cancelled.  That's it, the whole year cancelled!   I rolled my booth fees over to 2021 but the word out on the art street is there will not be large events (more than 250 people)  next year either unless there is a vaccine.

Sometimes you get excited when something strips a plant!  Nothing left but the stem from the Fennel. There were 12 munching away.

I emailed the sketch for my latest commission and am waiting for a reply.  I had a dentist appointment today, no cavities but he'd like to talk me into an implant.   Hummm   $5000, that's a lot of paintings!

Amazon dropped this off today... I think Linda is getting frustrated with trying to figure it out... I am not even asking questions!

I almost have my sketch for the new commission ready for approval.  I had to put several things together.  The sketch is actually a full size drawing so I could see the placement of each object.  I am not totally confident it will get a thumbs up approval but we will see.
