“Inn of the Hawke” 10″ x 8″ oil on canvas
Well if you saw my post last week about back roads, this week I found myself on yet another back road. This time I went to Lambertville, NJ. It’s a charming historic town right along the Delaware River. The community is full of art galleries and it’s the home to many artists.
This painting evolved on Wednesday. I was asked to participate in a fundraising event for the Lambertville Historical Society. The event included a plein air paint out in conjunction with their fall house tour. Unfortunately, I was not able to paint last Sunday so given the parameters of the event I was able to visit this past week.
What drew me to this location was the deep contrast and interesting architecture. The Inn of the Hawke was converted from a residence in the 1900’s to an inn and tavern. Today it still serves as a restaurant and inn. I like its rustic charm and the great food! This piece will be donated to the fundraising event that will occur in March 2017.
