DECEMBER 6TH was my best one day show at a local High School in a number of years.  I had a whole rack of paintings I put on sale once a year to clear out so the next year I can paint more paintings.  Thank you to all who came out.

Sold two and many others.
I still have a few left so if you are looking for a special Christmas gift I have
5 x 7 small framed prints for $ 15 and up to just prints like my Gate of Thanksgiving.
Matted this fits s 16 x 20 frame and is $ 25 
So if you missed the show and need a special gift, go to my Facebook site
 and contact me.

Right now I am getting ready for Christmas and painting more small watercolors for the next two shows.
Have a Blessed Christmas......Bruce

It has been an unbelievable year as I have gone through 8 weeks of painting every Tuesday at the Kuerner Farm in Chadds Ford where Andrew Wyeth painted under the watchful eye of Karl Kuerner III.  He pushed me to paint bolder and really add darks and lights to my paintings.

If you want to get real timely information and see my paintings as they happen, like me on Facebook as

This is Anna's porch at the front of the Kuerner farm.  
It was great to have  Karl;s input to help this become more than just a painting but rather take on the character of Anna's porch.

Brandywine Valley Plein Air

This is the Haskell barn at their farm on Creek Road in Chadds Ford

This is the spring house and ice house on a private farm off of Ridge Road in Chadds Ford

This is what was the ice house at the Haskell farm and is now a guest house

This is the Abyth Taylor home and barn near the Stroud preserve off Strasburg Road.

Next I completed my second year with the Brandywine Valley Plein Air painting 6 watercolors and framing them in 4 days.   I had to have the watercolor paper cut and ordered the frames and glass so I would be ready for a scene that caught my eye to paint.  There so many fantastic locations that I was overwhelmed with historic buildings such as the Abythe Taylor House at the Stroud Preserve, the Haskell Farm and several other private homes that were open for us to paint.

So I now have 8 new plein air paintings......well did have two were sold at the Brandywine Valley Plein Air Gala at Winterthur and then I have a show in early December and then the Malvern Retreat House show and the Chadds Ford Elementary School art show.

So I am working on 15 small watercolors for the Malvern show in late January as well as four large paintings.   Have a Blessed Christmas and healthy New Year.
