Watercolor on paper, 5" x 7"
$125 plus $6 shipping in U.S.
This little Victorian style cottage in Union has this wonderful trimmed-hedge entry. I looked up the word "bower" in the dictionary and found it can mean a leafy shelter or arbor, as well as a rustic cottage, so the title seemed appropriate.
We just returned from a week-long trip to southern California, where we proudly watched our oldest daughter Heather receive her masters degree from the University of Redlands. We also took care of some unfinished business--finally closing out the storage building we've been renting down there for the year and a half since we moved to Oregon. We hauled our stuff back in a U Haul behind my truck...whew! Doesn't it feel good when you finally tie up some nagging loose end from your past?
Sorry these posts are so sporadic, but it's going to be that way for some time. I won't bore you with the list, but this spring/summer has grown hectic, with multiple projects that all seem to need doing at the same time. I'll try to check in with a new painting as often as possible. Thanks to all of you who so faithfully (and patiently) follow my postings--it means a lot!
