Round Barn and Amish Buggies

Last week we had a short but sweet visit with Melanie, my granddaughter. Grandkids are a neat bonus in life! Grandson Michael studied in Germany for 2 years, and E-mailed fall photos from his travels. As a special gift for him, I'll be painting a watercolor from one of them. Am eager to get started.

"A gathering of the gentle folk,
perhaps to help a friend.
No thanks or praise do they require.
Their gift is a hand to lend. "
by K. Ward Miller

This week's feature print,
Round Barn and Amish Buggies, includes Ward's poetry. It reflects the generosity and kindness of the Amish, and has remained a consistent best seller. Matted size is 20" x 16" - an easy size to frame. Matted print is only $28.00 over our web site with FREE SHIPPING inside the contiguous US states! For "out of country" shipping, please call for shipping charges.

Studio update: Ward has just finished framing a nice collection of my Academy prints for a patron, and I'm almost finished with a new lake home commission - which includes an amazing curved fieldstone walk. Will post a photo after the customer has seen it. As long as we have nice weather, we plan to drive around taking photos of the fall scenery, especially interesting old barns since most of them are rapidly deteriorating. Although the newer pole barns are very functional, they are not nearly as picturesque. These photos will be an inspiration for me when the snow flies. .
