Harold Cromwell – A Market Regular!

Remember Harold Cromwell at the Annapolis Farmers Market? Or at Upper Clements Park? With pencil and sketchbook in hand?

Harold Cromwell

I think many of us remember those days very well… they weren’t that awfully long ago. His drawings were very detailed, and unique, most of them about a world he knew well.  You should read a bit more about him and see some of his artwork by following this link.

We are fortunate to have one of his works at our ART Auction on September 26 in the Gardens.

I do hope this artwork finds a good home!
