Digital traveling...

Continuing our travels...  like yesterday, I put together paintings that have a nice color pallet that flows in a way they could be hung together in a grouping even though the subject matter is vastly different.
Port of Manhattan    framed 8x10     $225
Manhattan, NYC.   A view from the water and it has a slightly impressionistic industrial feel.
The image is smaller 3 5/8 x 4 1/8


     SOLD!      Window #5    framed 10x8   $250.
Jim Thorpe, PA     We went here specifically looking for subject matter for me to paint. We stayed at the Parsonage B&B which was perfect. This is a view from our bedroom. I find the combination of the dark interior looking out at the houses interesting. There is really a lot going on in this painting.


       Williamsburg #3    framed 8x10   $225.
Can you guess this one?? To me it screams where it is... Williamsburg, VA That brick... it is all about the brick.

Starting week 2...

I am continuing my Social Distancing Show & Sale. I had almost 100 miniature original watercolors ready for my studio show before needing to postpone it. You may scroll down to look at the paintings posted last week, the price will not change and I will offer free shipping until we are allowed to go back to work!  There are more to show you so keep watching. 

My theme this week is TRAVEL... By looking at my paintings you get to go with me and see the places I have seen through my eyes. I will start somewhat locally for me in PA
.

SOLD!    Window #4    framed 8x10    $275.
We were antique shopping in the little town of Bath, PA. I make it a point wherever we are to really look around. I found this on the main street, loved the window. A perfect painting for me.


                 Landscape #16    framed 8x10   $275.
Lancaster County farm scene. I am fascinated with the movement, the flow of the recently cut rows, and the bales dotting the field.


                      Nemours #2    framed 8x10     $275.
From the grounds at Nemours in DE. They have several bodies of water, this one was shallow and you could see the bottom. There is also a wonderful collection of old trees. Well worth a visit and take your time walking the grounds.



The price includes acid free framing, a coupon for 2 free shrink wrapped mini prints ($25 value)  and  FREE SHIPPING!
Paintings are available to the first person to
email or call 717.627.3383 

I am showing them in black wood frames however you may have them in walnut frames.
If you purchase more than one I will offer $20 off each one, including any previous postings.

Friday "Social Distancing Show & Sale"

I am going all out today... featuring a grouping of 5 Miniature Originals.  This style grouping is called "clustered"  There are advantages to hanging in this style.   You can start small and easily over time extend your collection in all directions depending on your wall space and mix different interesting sizes.    You can swap out 1-2 paintings for a whole new look.  And if you move or downsize you can split up your grouping and spread them around.   

Friday's feature is "Winter"  and  "trees".   
Look how these pop on a rusty red wall.
These are hung temporarily and would not stay straight, I tried!


The price includes acid free framing, a coupon for 2 free shrink wrapped mini prints ($25 value)  and  FREE SHIPPING!
Paintings are available to the first person to email or call 717.627.3383 


All are framed 8x10, in black wood frames however you may have them in walnut frames.
They look fantastic together, if you purchase more than one I will offer $20 off each one!
                     SOLD!   Landscape #5    framed 10x8       $225.



Winter #2    framed 8x10     $225.


                                    Winter #4    framed 8x10   $225.



Winter #3   framed 8x10     $225.   

                     Winter #5    framed 10x8    $225.

Here is a hanging tip, lay your painting on newspaper
 or any 
larger paper, draw around the frame and cut it out. 
Using masking tape hang your cutout sizes and play with the
arrangement before you 
start banging nails!

Time for Commissions

More and more of my shows are cancelling so if you have been waiting for that special painting, I now have the time!  Here are a few examples of commissions I have done over the years...  Each one had a special meaning to the client and my goal is to add my style to my clients ideas.  I work closely with you to capture your vision.  We talk about what you envision, you OK the drawing and then I send emails as my work progresses.













I prefer not to do portraits, that is a specialty I do not get to practice.  Most anything else I can handle!  Send me an email to discuss size and costs.  I would be happy to work with you.

4 new Landscapes

FYI:  Just letting you know if you are visiting my studio, taking a class or thinking about coming to my new Miniature Show March 27-29... we are taking precautions!  We are wiping all door handles, tables and chairs with clorex wipes every time someone has visited, before and after every class.  Our bathrooms are constantly being scrubbed and sprayed with lysol.  We have paper towels in the bathroom.  Trying to keep on top of it.  No overly large crowds here...  Linda does have a winter allergy cough but not the big bug!  

I sold several mini landscape paintings so I needed to replace them.  All framed 8x10 and will be available at the new Mini Show.
