Winter Market in New London

The New London Market on the Green, where for the past two summers we’ve been selling notecards and prints made from my blog drawings, is coming back as the Winter Market.  It starts this coming Saturday, January 26th, and continues on the fourth Saturday of each month through April.  It will be held from 10 to 2 in Whipple Town Hall, at the intersection of Main Street and Seamans Road.  That’s the red brick building just to the right of center in the drawing below.

I’ll have a full assortment of my work on display, including some with a special winter theme.  Stop by!  I’d love to see you.

Here are a couple of New London winter images, one new and one a repeat from last year, to set the mood.

The little skating rink on the Green is busy whenever the weather is cold enough.  The rink thawed last week, but the ice has returned this week.  There is no town Zamboni though.  I drew this from inside the warm New London Inn.

Pleasant Lake has frozen and is covered with a layer of snow.  In the foreground the berry-laden winter vines brighten the scene. The dark treeline at the far end of the lake is the village of Elkins, where we pick up our mail.
