The Cotswold Pub

On an England vacation with my family we traveled the Cotswold. The endless rolling hills with weathered stone walls, dotted with grazing sheep were incredibly picturesque. Though there was a drizzling rain, I snapped picture after picture certain there was a painting in the making. We entered a little town (not certain of the name) and in walking the cobblestone streets came across this enchanting pub. John Sate is inscribed upon the old stone lintel above the doorway. I fell in love with the quaintness of this little pub. The bench in front was an invitation to sit for a bit. But as I stated it was drizzling and damp that day and if you look close in the watercolor I feel I captured the reflection in bench as well as on the stone slab as you enter the pub. I’m sure that I exaggerated the foliage above the doorway, which allowed me to artistically create ivy with the use of salt, added to my watercolor. The side windows depicted “bulls-eye” glass. I knew that I could never achieve this clearly in a painting so I simplified. Having developed this picture for a watercolor, I was just as curious to see it created as an acrylic, hence the second image. Each painting has it’s unique charm: the watercolor has warmth and soft glows, the acrylic offers crisper images of the flowers and reflections. My hope was to capture the charm in both images inviting you into this quaint little Cotswold pub.

About the Artist:
Bonnie Wolfe was born, raised and still resides in the Upper Sandusky area. Her initial art career began as a graphic artist for a local sporting company, allowing her to be creative with logo design as well as working with emulsions and screen developing in the lab well before everything was digitally composed. Raising a family inspired her to create her own business, allowing her the freedom to work at home. Through exclusive art shows throughout Ohio and Michigan she sold her artwork all across the country and abroad. Having no formal training, her art is more (strike 'more') instinctual and more about discovery; learning new techniques every day. Her current works are in watercolor, acrylic, ink and oils. She has been teaching adults and children for the past 22 years in her home studio. She teaches fundamentals and adds non-traditional methods she has developed over the years such as sponging, washing, glazing and splattering.

(Her) Students find her never-ending enthusiasm to be contagious. Bonnie continues to challenge herself by seeking special retreats with well-known artists such as Dr. Kyle Parks and Vance Shepherd. Through their influence, she has been introduced to “plein air” which has gently (or not so gently) pushed her to stretch even further.

Bonnie’s work has been on display at various galleries and trade shows throughout the country.
