We had a terrific weekend in New York City.  Stayed at the Hotel Edison, an art deco style-1930’s hotel.  The art was extraordinary.  These painted panels circled the lobby waiting area.

A painting that I did outdoors a year or so ago at the Bowen Farm in Rockland has been purchased by a collector in Oklahoma City.  It’s all packaged up and ready to go to the post office today…off to it’s new home in Oklahoma.  O-K-L-A-H-O-M-A, Oklahoma,  OK!  Couldn’t resist that one.  🙂

View from the Bowen Farm, 9″x12″, Oil on Canvas.

 A few weeks ago a good friend asked if I could paint a watercolor of the pond on her property.  Her dad’s 90th birthday was coming up and it was his “favorite” place and she wanted to give it to him.

We rode out to her place and took a few  photographs one afternoon.  And I could see why he loved the place so much.  It was lovely…and peaceful…and such a beautiful setting. 

 Even the outhouse was cool and perfectly placed in the tall shade trees.

After much rumination of the matter I decided to paint the view with the trees in front.  I like the way it turned out.  And she said her dad loved it too!  Happy 90th Birthday.

This is my new buddy – Allie.  Her mom is JoJo who has joined the Delilah’s co-op and has beautiful fine silver jewelry.  Stop in and see it.  Allie helped us Saturday at the festival.  She is a great saleslady.  And didn’t she look cute with her painted face???!!

She is also a great painter.  She helped me with the Coneflower painting that I was working on while her mom looked on.  Thanks Allie.

And thanks everyone who stopped in to see me Saturday.
