Local Artists Series

We love local art! Each weekend we display works from a local artist.  The artwork will be displayed in our greenhouse where you can explore some of the finer things in life – art and horticulture. Most pieces are for sale, and all profits go to the artist.

Gary Thomas September 22-25

Gary first started painting after he retired from a career as a design engineer.   Watercolor  was the medium of choice because of the way it mixes on the palette and paper.   Layers of color can be applied and each time the results can be both exciting and  sometimes unpredictable. A painting  should tell a story.   A painting should create emotion.  That is what  Gary tries to achieve.   He paints primarily in the winter  and  raises garden produce in the summer along with his other half,  Cinthy.   They attend Farmers markets  selling home grown produce.   They also specialize in growing garlic which is sold online.
