Green House and Property in Nolensville TN. (Sherwood Green) watercolors 8x11






This "was" the A.J. Green House in the summer time and late winter before it was torn down to make way for the new Sherwood Green housing development in Nolensville Tennessee. It was some nice farmland, but pricy real estate with a hefty property/inheritance tax burden I bet... I would sell too! I had to get some drawings and paintings of the property in before the bulldozers came in. I liked the design and big trees.
 (I assume it's AJ Green because I saw some old cancelled checks and bills when I nosed around the house and attic and looked at the scattered papers.)
Summer painting available,

Matisse Brand Acrylics run


I am test driving these Matisse Brand Acrylic paints for Jerry's Artarama. Jerry's gave me the Primary Color Set (Ultramarine, Thalo Blue, Light Red, Alizarin Crimson, Yellow Deep, Light Hansa Yellow, Mars Black and Titanium White plus a Gel Medium and an Impasto Medium. I am mainly a Golden user but I really like these Matisse acrylics a lot.
  I kept my palette pretty dense and saturated and they handle well. I am scheduled to give an acrylic demo at Jerry's Artarama in Nashville TN on Saturday June 20. Brush and palette knife. Trying out these DaVinci Pro Panels also. Drop by and say hello, heckle or throw peanuts at me.
