restocking...

After a busy first weekend of Open House, we have been framing and restocking, getting ready for weekend  #2. There is a great selection of prints to choose from in a variety of mat choices.  Including a few of the new prints.

A few New "Santa" prints still available


And there are plenty of originals for you to come see and fall in love with.






The second weekend is a bit more laid back.  No hors d'oeuvres and wine but I think a fresh batch of wassail is being served.  Grab a friend and head to Lititz!
Our doors OPEN
Friday:  10 to 5
Saturday:  10 to 5
Sunday:  noon -3

4 Days till Open House!

The menu planned and Linda did her grocery shopping to make some fantastic hors d'oeuvres. Over the weekend we stopped at the State Store! Today we finished framing.   All the paintings are hung and titles printed. Tuesday we finish setting up the studio. Wednesday is food prep day and last minute things. Thursday is cook and bake and Friday the doors open at 2PM!

You can see all the new paintings on my website although no sales till 2PM. If there is something you want and cannot attend, call at 2PM and claim it.
Here is a sneak peek.






Along with lots of new original paintings we have a great selection of framed and unframed prints including the two new prints.
We look forward to seeing you soon!

Busy Busy in the studio

Only 9 days till our Annual Open House.  Starting to feel the stress (well, Linda is!!)  Most of the kitchen remodel is finished or at least looking passable.  Some painting will not be finished but you won't notice,  please do not notice!

I know I have not posted in a while BUT I have been painting and doing lots of
work on my "to do list".
Stacks of frames ready for prints and paintings.  Lots of mats being cut.  Supply costs are going through the roof.  We are holding to our prices at least till next year.


Furniture is moved and show panels and lights are up.
After 3 years we are finally back to our Open House of old! 
While having it in the back yard worked and was nice, 
it feels "normal" to be back in the house like it has been for 30+ years.



I took advantage of a beautiful day and  hosed off the front porch and
hung a brand new sign.


The studio overhead lights and the tops of the cabinets were cleaned.  After many years I know there is much more cleaning to come!

Email invites went out today. Open House is by invitation however you may invite any family and friends.






I am starting to share some NEW original paintings, but remember, no sales until 2pm on 11/18/22!   N
o holds, we TRY to be fair to everyone.  If there is something you want, and cannot make it,  the best is to call promptly at 2pm. I will then mark it SOLD! They will all be posted on my website by the end of this week. We are still working on titles.
