Waterside houses

This started out unusually — I did the pen-and-ink sketch directly, without any pencil drawing, or even any real plan.

    I love this painting…we have a summer place just down the road. I was curious if you considered selling any of your work?

      I do sell my work, though as I make my living as a web designer, I somehow always end up as the lowest-priority client, so getting my eCommerce site up and going is perpetually back-burnered.
