My Paintings are for Rent!

I have 4 travel sketches at the Landstuhl Public Library. It’s part of their Artothek program. Artwork can be checked out, just like books, but there is a fee and some other restrictions. I like the program because it’s a way to get original artwork into more people’s homes, even if only for a short time.

Sorry to my friends living elsewhere. We’ll have to create an Artothek-like program where you are living!

Today’s castle – Burg Nanstein

I set out to draw Nanstein Castle in Landstuhl, Germany today. It seems like all I paint these days are churches and castles. Don’t ask me why. According to what I read, most of the castle residents were less than reputible folks and the “kights in shining armour” were their enforcers.

But luck was with me today… I got a set in the shade for the first drawing; it was a very sunny day. The second view came from my seat at the little cafe in front of the castle, where I was eating lunch. It was quite a good lunch, too. They served traditional German food.
