Original Painting Extreme SALE on my Etsy shop

For those interested:

Art, It can be overwhelming...

Although I have a great deal of storage, it's not infinite. And since I am so prolific, the need to do some house cleaning has come along. To that end, I have begun to add paintings to my Etsy shop for $25 each. These sell for between $100 and $125 each, but again, I must clean out. Nine have been sold since this post went up, 23 remain...

Here is the link to the paintings

The show on Mulligan's Hill is today folks!

This weekend is the Art event on Mulligan's Hill. If you are coming to visit with me specifically, you should attend the opening this evening, 6 to 9. The weather looks clear enough today, and as I am set up outside, today is the best opportunity to visit, as it may rain on Sunday.

That being said, There are eleven other fine artists in the show, and well worth a visit either this evening, 6 to 9, or Sunday, noon to 4. It's all indoors, except for me. There are quite a few of my recent paintings inside, but as many of you know, I also have a large number of prints, shirts, mugs, etc., mostly related to images of Historic Ellicott City, and that is going to be outside

And yes, I will be signing and selling my book, along with the one written by Jerry Harlowe, and illustrated by me.

 Here is more information on the event.
