Cars – Drawings

Here are some more drawings from my TV time sketchbook. This time the theme is cars, or maybe better said, places where cars are or where cars go.

You know I like to draw cars. Now you know I also like buses.

The photos are from Glenside, Wyncote, and Abington, PA, none of them from that long ago. These locations still look the same right now.

And here is the page from my sketchbook: It’s an 8″ x 8″ sheet I am drawing on.

Parks – Drawings

Here are some more small sketches from photos. I sit on my sofa at night while watching TV and draw, these days. You saw an earlier set of sketches done this same way recently, the connection being that they all depicted parking lots.

The theme this time is scenes from various parks I go to near my home – Lorimer Park, Norristown Farm Park, and the Pennypack Ecological Restoration Trust. Here are the photos:

Here is the drawing – pen and ink in an 8″ x 8″ note book.


Insider Art Show and Sale – Sunday, October 21

This Sunday I will be at the Bloomfield Farm Day/Insider Art Show & Sale at the Morris Arboretum. Hours are noon to 4 PM.

It will be held at the Bloomfield Farm section of the site and admission is free (if you want to visit the Arboretum across the street, you will still need to pay).

I’m taking clay work – a table’s worth or so. Tiles and sculptures both. This show marks the end of the outdoor 2018 season for me, and it’s a nice way to do so. Last year’s event featured a lot of wonderful art and crafts, music, food…and there were farm animals and tours of the grounds and mill (or you could just wander around yourself!)

For more information, look here: Bloomfield Farm Day/Insider Art Show & Sale, 100 E Northwestern Ave, Philadelphia, PA.


Fine Arts and Crafts Festival – Community Arts Center – on Saturday, September 22

Get ready, here is my next show! I’ll have my paintings on view. This is my last show this season where I will be showing paintings, heads up!

The show will be held in Swarthmore, PA, on Park Avenue, across from the township building/library.

Pennridge Gallery of the Arts, Sellersville, PA, next Sunday, September 16

Here’s where I’ll be next Sunday with my clay work.


This show is a lot of fun – there are many activities besides the art show, and the setting is the main street of Sellersville, PA. If you are in the area, I’d love to see you! If you want more information, visit the web site, Pennridge Gallery of the Arts.

Lansdale Festival of the Arts, next Saturday, August 25

This end-of-summer show is a long-running event and it’s one the very first shows I did when I started to sell my work. I am always pleased when this event comes around.

2018 - LFA FLYER

It’s held in Memorial Park just outside downtown Lansdale, PA, and runs from 10 AM – 4 PM. Beautiful location and some of the nicest show organizers ever. Stop by if you are in the area and say hello to me!

Tinicum Arts Festival, Saturday and Sunday, July 7-8, 2018

If it is July it is time for this long-running festival. In addition to the extensive art/craft selection they offer a variety of musical performances, demonstrations, and kids’ activities. Plus an art show in the barn, a silent auction, and book/white elephant sale. You can spend a whole day here, very easily, and maybe come back the next day, too. Just saying.

I’ll be showing my paintings here.

Moravian Tile Festival Next Weekend, May 19-20

Yes, it is time for this event once again – a whole show devoted only to tiles and tile work. It’s a favorite of mine, and I’ve posted about it over several years – if you search this blog (use the term tile festival) you’ll get a flavor of what it is about.


You can easily spend the whole day here – there is a wide variety of work to look at. And – the show is held under large tents, so weather is not a factor.

If you are in the neighborhood of Doylestown, PA, stop in and see me!
