Beckoning - oil painting on canvas by Dennis
In this month's Newsletter . . .
. . .we feature several
newly listed paintings by New Hampshire painter Dennis Sheehan.
Because we've recently sold a number of landscapes by this
talented American, we've just made additions to our Paintings
Gallery that bring the total number of his paintings on our
website to more than a dozen. You'll find a link to this new
group below as well as a short essay on Dennis and his work.
As we approach our Spring buying
trip to England, we've also included a story about a favorite
pub in the Cotswolds. You'll also find a curious tale about a
recent encounter with the US Post Office, as well as this
month's Pippin's Page and The Back Page. We hope you'll have a

Although I never expected it, the Postal Service has a
well-designed website that is not only quite navigable but
also offers many discounts on shipping that are not known to
everyone. We're using Priority Mail more than ever, and it's
good for our business. Last week, though, the cyber gods
played havoc with a package bound for New York.
Additional links to more than 11,000 pages and images will be
found in the Quick Links box on our website.

The Back Page
Our unusual winter gave us another surprise last week - a
March first snowstorm, which joined with our October blizzard
to frame our otherwise snow-less winter.
The snow arrived just in time for this month's back page. Click
