Let me start with the exciting time I had spending every Tuesday back on the Kuerner Farm where Andrew Wyeth walked, sketched, painted and shared in the lives of the Kuerner family. For 8 weeks at 11:00 am I was painting watercolors on site with Karl Kuerner III sharing his stories and most important his suggestions that have helped me improve my painting. AS hawks screeched overhead in the blue skies and slight breezes, I could only imagine how Andrew Wyeth felt sitting here painting. Here are several photos of views for me to try to do in a larger scale.
During October, had 16 paintings at Christopher's Restaurant in Wayne, PA for the month. They have a great brick wall on one side where they hung the paintings. I had great exposure.
Brandywine Plein Air This was my second year in this prestigious show. It took place starting October 20th allowing us to paint at 10 different locations in the Chester County - Northern Delaware area. Some neat places including some private homes. Then the paintings were in a show Friday the 24th to the 26th. We had ordered new frames and spacers so the watercolors are right behind the glass not touching it. I was excited that I sold two paintings and have some left over that are for sale at the Malvern Retreat House show and will be for sale at the Chadd's Ford Art Show.
This was one of the locations where I prepared a small sketch completed that helped me be paint the Abiah Taylor house.
OCEAN CITY BLOCK PARTY This one took place in Ocean City on October 11th with only our sweatshirts with my photo on it and Jan had some great new additions with some new OC bags with a bike on it. However, because it rained I could not show any watercolors.
DILWORTHTOWN WINE AND CHEESE PARTY On October 12th, we participated in this event selling originals and reproductions, as well as some new giclees. We also met many new people and that resulted in several new commissions of local sites.
So in February and March of this year I will be back with two shows with originals and reproductions from $ 15 to $ 500 so if you are looking for two great shows, come on out. And for sure tell me if you read my blog.
