Changes on the horizon

On August 4, Susan leaves for Hot Springs Arkansas and a one month residency at Hot Springs National Park. From August 4-September 4, there will be limited framing services available at The Mouse House. The gallery will remain open for sales of Susan's artwork, mirrors, and framed prints. All framed artwork will be 20% off the entire month. During this time I will be doing many things around the Mouse House which will include exterior painting, lap siding repair on the workshop with my buddy and Susan's art mentor Stephen Chesley, and other assorted chores. My hours may vary, but I can always accommodate anyone wanting to come over and shop.

Last Wednesday afternoon at the spur of the moment, we decided to reduce our stock of antiquarian prints. We have collected hundreds of prints over the years which we successfully sold as framed items, predominately at Terrace Oaks Mall. Since we are no longer there, we decided to free up some space in the gallery by consigning some of our collection to Quinn's Auction House in Falls Church, VA. We took a trip to DC on Friday and brought 16 boxes of prints and some assorted plate books to the auction house. We hardly made a dent in our collection! I also have some much needed floor space in order to better show our mirrors and Susan's artwork.

Here is Max in all his glory. Enjoy!
