Not long ago I took out my ink pens, my watercolor paints, and a pad of watercolor paper. I've been enjoying making small drawings of Ocracoke and other Outer Banks scenes. Then I got a notion to offer them for sale. Since I've been semi-retired at the Village Craftsmen I don't have as many opportunities to interact with visitors...and I sometimes miss that. So I have set up a wooden table on Lawton Lane, with some of my drawings displayed there.
Here is a photo Lou Ann took of the display:
And here is a closeup of a lighthouse scene:
The top of the lighthouse:
And the beach:

All drawings/paintings are matted and framed (5" X 7" black metal frame), and signed. They are ready to display, and sell for $20 each. If I am not at the table you can ring the bell to get my attention...or just drop your money in the slotted box if I have wandered away for a while (in that case I won't get the pleasure of chatting with you, but I will be able to afford fuel for my boat!).
