Courtyard Umbrellas

Courtyard Umbrellas, 12 x 9, oil on panel, L. Daniel © 2016

This is one of my favorite plein air pieces of the summer, and another from my painting days on Jekyll Island. This courtyard sits outside of Crane Cottage which was built in 1917 for Richard T. Crane. Crane, a manufacturer from Chicago, was part of the "Millionaire's Club" that gathered for fun and frolic on the island back in the day. Now, this cottage is home to a restaurant called "Courtyard at Crane" that serves up delicious lunches. I brought my own lunch that day, but it's charm, charm, charming inside too!

Hi admin,
I read your blog, its really awesome,
If you want large and uninterrupted shade, you can browse the net for sidepost umbrellas. Like the outdoor market umbrellas, the offset or cantilever umbrella too can come in various size and design. Some also come with light fitted to them.
see more details: peccary gloves
