Not far from my home is an old mill town called Ellicott City. The town was established by the Ellicott family, thus the name.  Tongue Row is a section of stone granite houses originally rented to mill workers by the owner Ann Tongue. Now these houses are a set of boutiques including a cafe and a silversmith.

A Farmer's Market is held by Tongue Row once a month seasonally. In addition to fresh produce, musicians serenade the event, and artisans sell their wares.

It's a lovely spot to stop and relax on the benches. 




  1. April, This is very pretty, and it has a glow to it!

    1. Thanks, Sue. Pouring the first layer of underpainting really helps with the glow.

  2. April - This is so light and lovely! I lived in Maryland and loved the Spring with the cherry blossoms and azaleas. This reminds me of that time.

    1. Thank you, Connie. How funny we lived in AZ and moved to MD in 1997. Sounds like you did the reverse.

  3. What a lovely painting - that blossom is a nice reminder that spring is just around the corner!

    1. Thank you, Rolina. That corner couldn't get here quickly enough.

  4. Your light is amazing April, such a sweet scene!


I look forward to hearing from you. - April
