Colorful Garden Benches

Sometimes a brush, pencil, or stylus is just not enough to satisfy the creative spirit in me. Last weekend, all chores were set aside, as I surrendered to spontaneous three-dimensional thinking and a little playful tinkering with jigsaw, electric drill, a box of screws, leftover paint, and castoff wooden pallets. Three cheerful garden benches were the result. I'm thinking they'll look nice in the snow. And even better over the years, as each year the rough surfaces are painted a new color, the old color peeking through to tease the eye.

This one has a built-in trug.

All are just plain comfortable.

Let me know if you want one. . .

Reading By The Fireplace

This is a view from the loft of my home on Cottonwood Trail in Sandy Hook, the second in a series of drawings paying homage to the many years I've worked in the book publishing industry. 

Done in Photoshop using a Wacom Tablet, this is a digital scratchboard drawing. It's available as a 32" x 32" archival print for $292 plus shipping. Payment can be made using PayPal, and delivery can usually be made in a week. Email me if you'd like to place an order.
