Maple Syrup on Tap - Deep River

watercolor
8" x 14"
landscape

This is a common scene here in Indiana at many of the state parks.  It happens in March. I am a little behind on posting all of my paintings....that's because I am busy painting.

This past week I had a meeting with the people in charge of the Indiana Visitor's Center in Hammond, Indiana.  They liked my proposal for a show and I will be having a show there next May.  It will be my watercolors along with Mathew Kaplan's photography.  I know that is a long way off, but I am sure the time will fly by really fast.  This is one of my dream places to have a show.....more info to follow.

Have a great weekend.
