“Inn of the Hawke”

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.

  1. What a wonderful place to paint, you captured that old charm older buildings have. Beautiful sunlight coming off the trees and those warm/cool shadows are a perfect offset. This scene is filled with warmth and charm, it will be a welcomed painting at the fundraiser in March.
