Garden and Greenhouse

In addition to painting, framing etc. this spring we have been busy planting seeds, weeding, fertilizing, rototilling and planting potatoes etc.
However as you see below we had a little setback in the weather in April!!!

The following are some pictures of the greenhouse, lettuce bed and my gardener!!

Please look at my May 9th blog regarding my new paintings and updates to see my most recent paintings and what's coming up.

New paintings and updates

Well, I've been busy!!

Painting new paintings, finishing unfinished paintings, measuring & cutting mats, giving Dick measurements for frames and framing. Whew.  Who knew retirement would be so busy!

During the month of  May my art is featured at the Beaver Meadow Audubon Center on 1610 Welch Rd., North Java, NY 14113. Twenty % of all sales  go to Beaver Meadow for their great work of educating people about nature and wildlife.

On May 22 the Art Loft at Chautauqua opens so I will be taking my artwork there for the summer.

In late summer or early fall I will have a solo show at Fox Run in Orchard Park for 6-8 weeks. I will keep you updated as to the exact date.

Below are the latest paintings of nature, wildlife and florals. I hope you enjoy them!

Oh, by the way, did I say that they are all for sale, both prints and some originals!!!

Special Request

I have a special request for my followers. A friend of mine, Jessie Tyson,  a student at Houghton Academy, auditioned and was chosen  to travel to Europe to sing with America Abroad Music. Jessie is the daughter of John and Jill Tyson. John is our pastor at the Arcade United Methodist Church where we attend.
To help with the fund raising, I painted a special floral watercolor for Jessie to help raise money.
She is raffling the painting at $1.00 per ticket. Anyone who is interested in helping Jessie and possibly adding an "original Boese" to your collection please contact me for tickets!  The drawing will be held later this summer.

Early Spring 2012 Update

I guess better late than never should be the theme for this blog so here goes! I have many new paintings (at least to this blog) so hope you enjoy!

 With spring around the corner and thoughts of  seeds germinating in the greenhouse and the sight of plants emerging in the garden, I am enjoying the renewed energy that spring and sunshine bring about.

Looking forward, in late May, The Art Loft will be opening and many of my artwork will be on display for sale. The Art Loft is located in Chautauqua, NY on Rt 394 near the Chautauqua Institute. I currently have some on my art work on display at the Arcade Library.

Prints and notecards are available of most of my paintings so please feel free to contact me if you are interested.

Happy Spring!
