The Chester County Studio Tour wants to make art affordable for everyone! 

As a participating artist in the tour, I was given the opportunity to create one unique 6x6-inch framed piece of original art that I will sell for $75 (see "One Love" above) in order to show that art can be everywhere!

The early bird gets the worm, or my County Collector piece in this case.  The show runs Saturday, May 19 from 10 am to 6 pm, with the second and last day being Sunday, May 20, 2018 from 11 am to 5 pm. 

I will be a guest artist at the studio of Chester County photographer Mike Fleck.  You will want to make STUDIO #12 at 70 Highspire Rd., Downingtown, PA 19335 your FIRST STOP on the studio tour.  Click HERE for directions to Studio #12.

From the tour's website:  Whether this is your first time buying original art or you are a seasoned collector, the tour now has something for everyone. In some instances, a favorite artist might be out of someone's price range, but now with the County Collectors' Club, art is within reach. Some art enthusiasts are out of wall space yet enjoy the thrill of adding new art to their collection. This becomes possible with the County Collectors Club since the pieces are considered normal.

All County Collector pieces are uniform in size and framed with a simple, elegant black frame. To assure quality and uniqueness, all pieces will have a specially-marked certificate printed on the back commemorating this year's studio tour. The County Studio Tour is asking the artist to create only one commemorative piece of art, so plan your day and get out early to ensure you have art on your walls by Monday!

Update:  My County Collector piece went home with this couple.  If you missed the opportunity, just contact me so we can discuss a commission painting just for you!
