Brandywine Park Bridge & Outdoor Show Update

"The hardest thing in life is to know which bridge to cross and which to burn" - David Russell 

This painting is 7" x 5" oil on canvas board.

"Not a new painting?" I hear you ask. I know, it's been tough getting to paint lately and with preparations for the summer shows I feel like my painting schedule has slowed to the speed of DC beltway traffic. For instance, making the frames alone has taken up all of the past three weekends. That's seven days of near non-stop sawing, sanding and stapling.

Oh, you didn't know I made my own frames? Here's a quick lesson from 2010.

See? That's how I get my beauties prepped. Nothing but the best for these little gems.

I've also spent plenty of time designing and printing the new 2012 outdoor show cards. It may seem like just a promotional postcard, but I make sure each card is unique and executed just right.
