Clothesline Art Sale


So we went to stay in south Florida to run away from the cold. The place we stayed had a “Clothesline Art Sale.”  We set up tables in front of the main house and suddenly there was art everywhere…oil paintings, jewelry, watercolors, greeting cards, wood prints…so much! People came & people bought! So much fun, so casual, what a lovely event. I decided to capture a quick pen & ink, watercolor sketch.

I used micron pigma pens.

Since I was little I liked to visualize and create things. Painting with watercolors is what makes me happy now. That, and spending time gardening and reading. I love long walks, biking, and the beach. Cape Cod is where I spend a lot of my leisure time.

      Lucy, thanks for stopping by and checking out many of my paintings. I moved my primary residence this summer and I haven’t had much time to paint or check out WordPress. Hopefully, this fall I will get back into a rhythm. Hope that all is well for you!


  6. LOVE everything about it!

      Elena, thanks so very much. I am glad you like the sketch. You could feel the spontanaity of the event in the air. Somewhere during the whirlwind I sold two paintings and a whole bunch of handpainted cards.

    Thanks Leslie! Such a fun, satisfying way to share (and sell) one’s art. Met many wonderful people that day, we had ten tables.

    I love this sketch! Brings back wonderful memories of my grandma who always hung her clothes on the line, even after her doctor told her to stop (raising arms over head bad for her heart condition). Then she ironed everything including sheets and undies!
