Thanks to everyone who came out to the Fall Fest in Newark, DE yesterday! It was an honor to have the opportunity to perform for you on the keys, especially after not performing in public for the past couple years (due to all the craziness). It was a great morning/afternoon. Special thanks to my wonderful wife, Laura, for being in charge of the merchandise table while I played. Some commissions were placed (classic cars - stay tuned). Many prints and CDs were sold ... thank you all so much for the support! Those of you that placed orders for prints that weren't available yesterday, I will be shipping them out at the beginning of this coming week. If you were not able to attend yesterday, you can find everything right here on my website. If you are interested in a commission, I have a few ahead in line, but contact me and I can add you to my list.
Have a wonderful rest of the weekend everyone! 😁
Many of you might remember my "Fisher's Popcorn Stand - Ocean City, MD" drawing I completed last summer. I sent a matted print to the owners of Fisher's Popcorn (the Fisher Family) as a thank you for all the memories their popcorn has given my family and me over the years. (It's always been a tradition for my family to make a stop to this location during our annual OC vacation).
Anyhow, the owners are class acts ... they sent me a hand written personal thank you note and two large tubs of popcorn.
They are putting it on display in their home. I am honored that they liked it as much as they did and I will certainly enjoy the popcorn! 😋🍿
A beautiful day at the Carroll County Balloon Festival today. Unfortunately it wound up being too windy/stormy for the balloons to liftoff. This was disappointing ... since it was fairly pricey to get in and there are no refunds. While the weather is out of our control, many people were still bummed.
