It's hard to believe after so much painting and getting ready that Open House and Open Studio are both over.  Both went very well. We restocked prints, again!   So there is still plenty here for you to pick from.  We do not have set hours but if you call or email we will try to accommodate your visit.

 Abbey and Ben were home for Thanksgiving Eve.  We had a wonderful dinner at Aussie and the Fox in Lancaster.  Nice to see a good restaurant with plenty for us carnivores but also a good selection for my vegetarian kids.  Thanksgiving day was spent at our friends the Hildebrands; a good traditional meal with great company.  We are blessed with fantastic friends.

My plan is to concentrate on my " A Painting a Day"  Holiday pieces.  I have one last show for the year this Sunday at the Marietta Tour of Homes.  Plus I am artist for the month of December at Moravian Manor in Lititz.  So, no rest!

Only 4 days till Open House!

If you have never been to Open House, and I would not admit that out loud!  When you first walk into the house we feature only the new work and anything I painted in 2016 on the right side.  On the left side is anything left from 2015.  This is not my doing!  Linda has a "thing" for featuring new work, causing me to work harder than I might if I was in charge of hanging the paintings!!  Into dining room there are fantastic homemade hors d'oeuvres for you to snack on.  The studio features all my prints, stacked with mat choices. Then out on the porch, which I recently enclosed just for Open House, are any paintings painted before 2015.  All that to say this morning we set up the porch and hung the paintings.

Labels were printed for the new paintings.  Linda put my new work on my website this afternoon but none of it is available to purchase until Friday at 2pm!  To be fair to everyone we do not open the doors or answer the phone till 2:00!  If you want to order an original you may call promptly at 2:00 on Friday, but wait till after Open House to order prints.

This little gem is 22x11 and will be waiting for you!

I packed the van today for this weekends show.
Artisan Fair
Held at Olympic Hall at Spooky Nook Sports Complex
2913 Spooky Nook Rd, Lancaster, PA
Sat. 10am-5pm and Sun. 10am-4pm
$5. admission

This is the old show held at F&M College (back in the shows
heyday), moved to Manheim Township school, moved to the
Lancaster Convention Center and now at Spooky Nook.
Good quality and worth your time.

The last of the framing was done today!
Cleaning... I mention the cleaning every year.  Somehow Linda
uses this as an excuse for major housecleaning.  I mean get a
ladder out, change the water ten times type of cleaning.
So today most of the cleaning was accomplished, Linda gets
weird about cleaning out the overhead lights... I think you
will be so wrapped up in looking at my paintings you won't
notice old dead bugs in the overheads!  That approach did not
work, so they were cleaned.  Window were washed.  Really...
you are looking out my windows??  May I remind you your
eyes should be on my paintings!  I was ignored and it all got
done.  Tomorrow I get a haircut, the house is not the only thing
getting cleaned up!   Oh... anyone in Lititz have access to any
bittersweet?  Its on Linda's list.

10 Days Till Open House

Panels and lights up in the living room.  Paintings laid out where they may go. Rug laid out on the porch and a plan for panels there.   Grocery shopping started for your hors d'oeuvres, and a stop at the State Store for wine.

Below is another painting that will be waiting for you!  Not available until 2pm on Friday the 18th.  I cut the mat this morning, getting framed tomorrow.  18x14"  Put it on your wish list!

14 Days Till Open House!

Good news...I just picked up 52 more frames!!  Busy busy.
Not so good news... I got my new health insurance premium, it is now over $1447.00 a month,($17,364 a year)  that's higher than a mortgage payment.  I am putting the blame squarely on the greedy insurance companies who are keeping their profits high... So now we spend days looking for a new plan.

Meanwhile...another finished painting.  Not for sale until 2pm Friday 11/18!
Title suggestions...

17 days till Open House!

I had some finished paintings I had not shown because I am holding them for Open House!  This is NOT for sale until November 18 at 2pm, but you can put it on your wish list!    Linda just framed it and I love it.  Those that know me know I love moons and a moon glow.  I am open to title suggestions.
There is still a lot of framing going on with a huge amount of supplies being delivered.  Linda was working on over 200 address corrections.  Email invites went out today to those not on the snail mail list.  House furniture has been rearranged to make room for panels. I am stuck to my chair painting!
