Save the Date...

After lots of discussion and trying to think outside the box, we have decided to bump our Annual Open House up to October and move it to our back yard!  We will be open daily for 2 weeks to help spread out the crowds.  I encourage you to come during a week day if you can.  There will not be the usual wonderful spread of hors d' oeuvres and we are asking you to please wear a mask.  Also if it is a rainy day we will not be open but with 14 days you should have plenty nice days to pick from.  We will be putting up 3-4 tents for you to walk around.  Get this on your calendar!!

Our Annual Open House is moved to
               Our Backyard

Thursday, October 1st through Wednesday, October 14th
     daily from 10am to 5pm

* Cancelled on rainy days
* We encourage you to come during the week
it will reduce large crowds!

We are open to your suggestions or opinions... send an email.

Somerset Beauty

Somerset Beauty
Image:    17x 6"
Framed: 22x11"

While we were in Ohiopyle PA we drove around searching for covered bridges and looking at the beautiful country side of Somerset County.   Beautiful farmland,  and there is nothing like a red barn against the green landscape. 

I have my next commission drawing approved (after 2 tries!)  and I am starting to draw it on my watercolor paper.  This one is way out of my normal paintings.  It should be an illustration and it is testing me greatly...  I am doing everything I can to make my client happy...

This was my July commission, it was a birthday present and I may now show it!
Framed 12x12
Keep me in mind for a special gift.

My very last show that was holding out has now announced their cancellation.  Fall Foliage in Bedford, PA held in October.  Heart of Lancaster in September is also cancelled.  That's it, the whole year cancelled!   I rolled my booth fees over to 2021 but the word out on the art street is there will not be large events (more than 250 people)  next year either unless there is a vaccine.
