2009 Signs of Spring #9

mini original watercolor  $250

This little gem had been hanging in Linda's Moms apartment. It is time to find a new home. I painted it in 2009 but I don't think I would change anything.

Another painting making its debut at Ludwig's Corner Show this weekend.
2022 Copper and Pewter    21x17" framed $2000.

A force in watercolor! Keep in mind I do not have copper or pewter colored paint. It is all mixed with my usual messy pallet, pretty amazing isn't it!!  I even surprise myself sometimes.

2022 Landscape #17

mini original watercolor   $225

A landscape from the Finger Lakes.

We are making an effort to get out and do a few fun things...
Last night we went out to Longs Park (Lancaster, PA) for a free concert from their summer series.
We had a little picnic and listened to Tony Jackson.   Country music but he was very good and it was a beautiful night.

2022 Landscape #14

mini original watercolor   $250

I LOVE Lancaster County farmland. Right now everything is a beautiful lush green. Finding this inspiration is a good reason to keep riding my bike!

Speaking of bikes, today is our tandem riding day, going out with our friends the Hildebrands to the Enola Low Grade trail. Starting at the Colemanville Church Road entrance and riding across the newly finished Safe Harbor Bridge and back. About 17 miles round trip with lunch at Frog Town Cafe.   We were blessed with perfect weather.

We watched an interesting documentary on Netflix.    In Search of Greatness.
I learned two things. 1) Our kids are too structured, they need free play time. 2) there are kids who do not follow the normal rules, they are driven to explore on their own, imagining new ways to do something. Interesting as a (retired) coach to think about. It was worth a watch.

$130. (unframed) 4x6” mini original watercolor
Available to the 1st person to email
(framing $35 - shipping available at cost)
If unsold by 6/9 the price goes to $250

Another great still life from Stratford Hall, VA. This one looks even better than it photographed, you will not be disappointed!

Last Friday I participated in Taste of Lititz Quick Draw.  I had 2 hours to start and complete a painting plein air!  I did it and it sold!   

One more thing, we needed 550 postcard stamps.  I went to my local Lititz post office.  There was a line and only one teller.  They only had 50 stamps...  So I drive to the Neffsville post office.  Closed for lunch!  I was not going to sit and wait.   Now off to the big one on Harrisburg Pike.  I was #13 in line but they had the stamps.  Should not be this hard.
