Boat Commission finished!

Finished!  A very happy client just left with her new painting.
I am not a boat painter and my boat knowledge is slim,
thankfully my photos were good!  This was all hand-drawn
and I used my brush to add the lines and rigging.  My client
is adding her own custom frame and I can't wait to see it
framed.   Now back to some of my own work for my shows.

Last weekend we had a fantastic day at Bushkill Falls.  We
had been there when we were dating and I do not remember
there being so many steps...  lots and lots of steps!  If you plan
a trip, we had breakfast at Vinny D's (looked like a dive outside...)
but we had great breakfast sandwiches and coffee.  And after
our great day we had dinner at North 9th Street Restaurant
and it was excellent!  A very special place to eat.

Here we are enjoying the day!

This Saturday… I will be at:100% HANDCRAFTED SHOW
Saturday, April 18 from 10am to 3pm
Held at Robbinsville H.S.
155 Robbinsville Edinburg Rd, Robbinsville NJ

2nd Friday in Lititz

Tonight I can be found at 2nd Friday in downtown
Lititz, PA. My prints will be gracing the walls of
Thomas Morton's fine furniture for the next three months.
The store is located at 61 E Main St. in Lititz.

I have started another commission that has been taking
up my time...  a model boat.  A bit out of my wheelhouse!
It has lots of fine detail, I drew it and did not like the shape
ran out of room on my paper, so after three days I started
over.  Here is the corrected drawing.  The painting will fit
into a 17x21 frame.
     Once the drawing was approved by my client
    I started painting... (click over to enlarge)

    Still have lots more to go...

    Also remember it is track season!!
    ELCO Jr.Hi. invitational is tomorrow, and if the weather
    is nice on Sunday we plan to go to Bushkill Falls for the day.
