Little Houses – 5″ x 8″ Watercolor

.

This is an older painting, but I really liked it.  The photo was from Jakesgram at WetCanvas.  I think the building on the left is a bar.

I am almost finished with all my framing for KC show.  Yay!   That’s hard work, when you do it right.  😀

About William Penn

William Penn is remembered as the founder of Pennsylvania; the democratic government he set up became the model for the United States Constitution. He was born on October 14, 1644 in England. After he was arrested several times for preaching Quaker ideals, he decided to found a settlement in America. He drew up the “Great Treaty” with the Delaware Indians to ensure they were paid fairly for their land and toured Europe marketing the new colony. He died on July 30, 1718.

      Thanks, Leslie! I’m excited, a little nervous, but mostly filled with joy at the idea of it. I intend to learn a lot and have fun!! If I sell a bunch of paintings, well that will be great, too, but I’m not going to let sales be the most important thing. 😀
