Thank you to all who braved the pandemic

for a wonderful 2021 tour.



Original watercolors, prints, books & cards


Always moving, one way or another


Yes, unlike last year, we were open this year!

Our set-up was outdoors only and for the health of our patrons

young and old, social distancing and masks were required while on the

studio property regardless of vaccination status. Everyone was wonderful about masks, sales were brisk, and best of all we made many, many new friends. We hope to see you again in 2022.
