Firehall No1

The clothing business has been a great part of my life for so many years, thus, I could not resist the urge to make a "Red Hot Sale" at my fictitious boutique "Tee 'N Tee".
In actuality, Firehall No1 is currently occupied by another retailer.

Spanish Hall

Spanish Hall, is another wonderful building, easy to ignore, that has been taken over by bowlers, truth is, I'm greatful it hasn't gone "parking lot".
Gotta love America.

Hotel & Rug Importers

Passing the back of this hotel, I noticed the signboard, Rug Importers. I thought "what a peculiar coalition".

Smythe Building

Watercolour   12" x 16"

After sketching the Smythe Building I included my brother Harvey, (he loves boats) peering through Tervis Tumbler's store, as well as a reference to my former "Dry Goods" business.

Southern Rail

I live in Lady Lake not far from a retirement village where the developers have created this fairy-tale imaginary, old western, world. The neat thing is that there are loads of original and replicated American icons and naturally lots to sketch.
The bad news is attempting to take some of these icons and put them into a context, sometimes I get it and sometimes....    That being said I am happy with my new marsh-mellow clouds                                                                                                              Watercolour  12" x 16"

Me and Zoe, Out for a Spin

Well, I decided to use my "Signs watercolour painting as the basis for this oil.
I confess that I struggled with the red car and "Me"!

Alas, here are the results of my Oil painting N0. 4

Home Cooking

And just when we gave up hope after dining on too many "big box" suppers, Cottage Inn was a welcome relief.
It may not be much to look at, but they sure had good food.

Spanish Building

10" x 14"

I thought this building was sketch worthy.
As it turns out it is currently being operated as a bowling alley.
Only in America....!
