Open House Update

New prints are here and being framed!  We started with two, went to the printer, had them put on the invitation and I thought we were all finished.  Then I painted some tulips and Linda thought they were... dare I say "fantastic"...  so she insisted we print them and worry about advertising them later.  We decided to ONLY PRINT 50 of each so it is a very limited run.  We are taking orders now!  You may send an email or order off my website using PayPal.

13x9" print: $45.00 
18x14" Framed print:  $85.00

12x16" print: $50.00 
17x21" Framed print:  $100.00


10x16" print: $50.00 
15x21" Framed print:  $100.00
Three fantastic new prints but wait till you see the new originals!

2019 Still Life #20

4x6” original watercolor $250.

I tend to like busier still life paintings so I have been practicing concentrating on a single object and filling the page.  It is great practice.

The count down is ready to begin... 23 days till my 36th Annual Open House!  I will start to post my larger painting just to give you a tease.  NO sales of originals till 2pm on Friday November 22.  But you can put it on your wish list!
Prints can be ordered.

This is my last week to teach.  Next class is in January.  Check my students work.

Open House Update

I wanted to finish a large painting I have been working on so there is no painting a day piece.  Meanwhile there are fantastic things happening here at the studio.  My NEW prints were delivered and here I am signing them.

Lots of framing is going on...

6400 invitations were delivered today!   They do not go out until the 29th  But you should save the date!  You don't want to miss this.   Lititz is a wonderful town for you to spend the weekend.

4x6” original watercolor      $250.

Practicing my crockery!

Open House Update...
Frames, glass and matboard are pouring into the studio.  Today I put the tarp up on the porch and picked up the new prints.  I am in the process of signing and numbering them.  They look fantastic and I will share them closer to the Open House.  Invites are arriving tomorrow.  We are ahead of schedule!!

We stole a bit of time to have some fun yesterday.  Celebrated our friend Bonnie's birthday by going to see the movie "Judy" and I was very surprised how well done it was and how much I enjoyed it.  This was followed by a very nice dinner at the Fireside Tavern in Strasburg PA.

2019 Still Life #18

4x6” original watercolor   $225.

A simple chair...
My client finally gave his wife her anniversary commissioned painting and I can now show it off.  They collect Jeff Fiant furniture from Mohnton, PA and have lots of Andy Smith's paintings so he thought it would be nice to have a painting of the bench Jeff made setting in their home to combine their two favorite artists.  The size is 14x18

If you are near the Mohnton, PA area this Saturday you can see both my paintings and Jeff's furniture at:
PA Traditional Craft & Folk Art Show
Satruday, Oct. 19 from 10 to 3
Held at Allegheny Evengelical Luthern Church

It is too soon to start my annual Open House count down and update however, there is lots being done.  Frames and framing supplies are being delivered every time I look up and in very large quantities. Linda is slowly framing the other prints so there will be a large selection for you!  We are doing 2 new prints this year and they are at the printer, I will post them a bit later.  FYI: there will be a VERY limited edition of only 50 of each print!  Tear sheets for the new prints are being designed and printed.  Our invitation is still in the design stage.  This is a wonderful time to spend a weekend in Lititz.
