Diamond Shoal, 1905, Winslow Homer (1836-1910)

An email from a cousin got me to looking at what is happening in Philadelphia in early April.  I was delighted when I ran across an exhibition at the Philadelphia Museum of Art featuring American Watercolors.  Take a look here.  Looks like a field trip is needed.

I was thrilled to be asked over the last month or two to do several commissions this Christmas.  I have been waiting to post them on my blog so that I would not spoil the surprise for those receiving them as gifts.  Now I can share them with you.

“Walking the Boardwalk” is a watercolor of a father with his kids walking down a boardwalk.  I love the image that was sent to me so it was  a really fun piece to do.
