Merry Christmas to all...

I want to take a moment to say thank you
for your support for another year. I wish you
all a wonderful holiday and a New Year filled
with blessings.

Abbey and Ben are home and we did our family
dinner and gifts last night. They will be house sitting
a bit while Linda and I head off to California for a
few days with friends. We will be sightseeing, keeping
my eye out for new exciting material and then cap off
the week with the Rose Bowl Parade.

Leave an email if you are planning to take classes.
They start the day after I return. More info on my

My blog will start its 5th year! So join me again in 2011!

2010 Holiday Series #6

4"x 6" Original Watercolor
$250. Contact the Studio

An ordinary brick entrance in Georgetown, DC.
I like the bright color harmony of the door
and the red bow hanging off the lamp.

My final commission was picked up today and
he loved it. Pressure is off! I am still taking boxes
to UPS so keep the orders coming! I also have
gift certificates available, give me a call so I can
help with your last minute gift buying. A painting
lasts forever!

2010 Holiday Series #5

4"x6" Original Watercolor
$275.00 Studio price ~ SOLD

To all my bow lovers... check out this luscious bow!
This is from my stroll around Georgetown. Needs
a bit of paint but I liked the contrasts of the new green
wreath against the weathered white.

Busy weekend. Friday I worked on my commission
all day. Then I took Linda out dancing. Saturday we
were car shopping. I need to replace my Saab and
found a nice one. Sunday I did very little! Yes, I
will admit that. Linda was helping her Mom so I just
chilled. Today was back to my commission which is
now finished and I am framing it next.

Remember if you were planning to place an order you
really should get it in shortly so Linda does not have
to rush! The $10 off coupon is only good until 12/21.

2010 Holiday Series #1 & #2

2010 Holiday Series #1 ~ 4"x 6" original watercolor
$225.00 Contact the studio

An interesting architectural design I found in
Georgetown, DC. I was on a hunt for holiday
wreaths with bows! I think it is the shadows
against the wall that offer interest.

I have two paintings to put on tonight since I
missed a few days...

2010 Holiday Series #2 ~ 5"x5" Original watercolor
Contcat the Studio $200.00

Two buildings, interesting angles, night sky, full moon,
a little snow on the roofs and a holiday wreath...
perfect to me!

We spent Monday in cold and windy DC. Abbey walked
around with us. Ben was studying, his law finals are
starting shortly. There were not as many decorations
as past years but I found enough to start me off!

I posted my new
2011 classes on my website.
Sign up started today!

Lancaster County Landscape

Lancaster County Landscape
4"x6" ~ $250.00 ~ Contact the studio

I am busy working on my two commissions,
going back and forth between the two. One is now
ready for paint and one is almost finished.
I am hanging out in the kitchen area because the studio is being used to box orders and
Linda was at the kitchen table with show applications
spread out from one end to the other. Hard to believe
we have to squeeze that in before the end of the year.
But many shows have due dates in December so she
needs to look over the 2011 schedule. Linda starts to
get restless this time of year so I need to be listening and
be careful how I respond to questions like... how about
Atlanta; haven't been there in a while, can we go to
Kentucky twice in a season, how far is Belleville, IL,
we could stop and see Esther in IN on the way...
can we do two weekend shows in Ohio and
stay with Bruce and Kathy (our good Ohio friends)...
You get the idea!

Keep calling with your orders, I am told we are on
schedule with shipping.
