Port George circa 1900

On a trip this summer to Port George with friends we visited the Candle in the Window shop where we received a brief overview of the history of the area. I picked up a few old postcards (always looking for ideas for painting), and with the shop owner's blessing, returned home with several ideas. Here is one of them. I call it Port George circa 1900 and it is 6x12. Hope you enjoy this one. Next week I will be back to painting winter scenes. Tomorrow is the last Annapolis Farmer's and Trader's Market for the year. I will certainly miss all the vendors.

Winter Wonderland

As promised, here is my most recent painting. It is a winter scene in preparation for the Christmas Shows that will soon begin. Once again, as with most of my painting, you will find clothes hanging on the line. That is because it is one of my favourite things to do. If you drive by my house in February, for example, there will most likely be a line of clothes flapping in the breeze – albeit stiffly :) Winter Wonderland is 11x14 inches and depicts the way I remember winter – lots of snow and plenty of outdoor activity. Have a great weekend.

A Busy October

As of today I have sold 97 paintings this year. I am hoping for 100 by the end of 2009. Perhaps I should add a meter to my blog that would provide an ongoing record of paintings sold to date. But given that it would take advanced technical ability, it is not likely to happen. It has been a busy month for sales with the Middleton Christmas Dreams show, the Annapolis Farmer's and Trader's Market, the Milford House and the website. I also sold three originals to passengers of the Balmoral, a cruise ship that docked in Digby on the 15th. Three paintings are on their way to jolly old England.
It is time to begin a collection of winter paintings for the upcoming Christmas shows. My most recent one, visible above, is called Caroling and is 9x12. I will be posting each paintings on this blog for you to view prior to putting it up for sale. Hope you enjoy them.
