About James Redding
 
James Redding was born in Wilmington, Delaware and now resides in historical Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Without formal training, he began drawing and painting in early childhood and never remembers making a conscious decision to become and artist. “It’s just something that has always been a part of me”. Redding’s paintings reflect a unique watercolor style striving to capture depth and texture and lending a sense of realism to the subject, with a medium that is forever challenging, but which he feels is well suited to what he wishes to convey. Unknown to many followers of Redding’s works, he hides the name of his wife, Mary, in every watercolor. It is always a challenge to find it, subtly entwined in the blades of grass, carved in the bark of a tree or possibly woven into the pantaloons of an antique doll. Redding’s works have been exhibited in numerous galleries and have also become a part of many collections.

The Thompson-Neely “Grist Mill”

The Thompson-Neely GristMill is a water-powered mill built in 1841 by Robert T. Neely. The original grist mill was destroyed by fire in 1873. Rebuilt by John T. Neely in 1874, the Thompson-Neely Grist Mill was a working mill until the establishment of the park in 1921.

The artist captured the breath-taking and beautiful snow-scape of the mill while the snow was still falling, giving the painting a moody, almost surreal feeling. As you look closely at the rise of the tree- line in the background you will see the historic Bowman's Hill Tower looming .

“The Janney Homestead” - Circa 1740. In colonial times, this property was known as the Janney Plantation. Until the late 1800's, Silver Lake- just to the north- was known as The Janney Dam. From 1731 well into the 1970's-about 240 years- this house was the hub of a busy farm and mill site.

The central portion of the house was probably built sometime between 1731 and 1750.It was already an older house by today's standards when George Washington passed through Newtown. The front faces Core Creek because, when the house was built, "The Road to Morgan's Mill"- later renamed Silver Lake Road- passed by the house between the well and the sawmill forerace.There was no road west of the house. Just to the south, a smokehouse and millhouse are still standing as useful structures.

In 1683 Thomas Janney a Welsh Quaker minister, arrived in Philadelphia on the ship Endeavor, from London. He settled with his wife, Margory and their four sons, about a mile south of Yardley on the Delaware River. He had purchased a choice, 250 acre "river lot" from his good friend William Penn. This was the founding of the Janney clan in America. Thomas Janney went on to become one of the most distinquished of early colonists, serving on the Provincial Counsel and the Court of Justice for Bucks County. He was one of the twelve men who divided Bucks County into its present-day townships. Thomas Janney's holdings grew to more than 1800 acres, extending westward until they bordered on this property. His grandson, also named Thomas, further enlarged the Janney holdings when in 1731, he purchased this property from a John Milnor. For the next 181 years- until 1912- this property passed from one Janney generation to the next. Today it is fondly and reverently referred to as "The Janney Homestead" by the many thousands of Thomas and Margory Janney descdendants. Every year, groups of these Janney clan members come, from all over the U.S. to see and to spend a few hours at this place of their roots.

Crossing Community Church purchased the property in 1985. Ever since, church members have been working to preserve and restore it's rich historic character.

“The Court Inn” - The Court Inn was built in 1733 by Joseph Thornton Sr. Originally called the Half Moon Inn, it is now known as the Court Inn because it is located diagonally across the street from the former site of the Court House building. The Court Inn is listed on the national register of historic places and is considered one of Newtown's treasures. The Court Inn is the headquarters of the Newtown Historic Association. The Court Inn was bequeathed to the association by Robert L. La Rue and restored in his memory by his wife Ruth in 1965.

"I captured this wonderful scene of the Inn from a unique perspective says the artist". Standing across the street and studying the subject I was intrigued by the lamppost, flowers and wrought iron fencing that seemed to enhance the stately building. I decided to paint the scene including these elements. The result pleased me greatly. I hope that you enjoy what I consider to be one of my most technically excellent pieces.

“Pennsbury Manor Barn” - Pennsbury Manor was planned and built by William Penn- statesman, diplomat, founder of Pennsylvania. He built Pennsbury Manor as his private estate in the colony he established in 1681. Penn preferred the quietness and open space of the country to city life, and found at Pennsbury a chance for meditation and relaxation. Penn lived in his country home during the time that he was planning the city of Philadelphia.

The artist captured the horse barn and stable from a unique perspective. It is late in the day and the sun is setting, producing an unusual sky. Because the light is beginning to fade the occupants of the barn have candles glowing as seen through the windows. Walking the grounds of Pennsbury with the artist, you are transported back to simpler time. The mood is peaceful and the scene breath taking.

What Is A Gicleé ?

A gicleé (zhee-CLAY) is an individually produced, high-resolution, high-fidelity reproduction. Gicleés can be produced on any number of media, from canvas to watercolor paper to transparent acetates. Some artists have begun to work directly with this new printing process.

Gicleés are superior to traditional lithography in several ways. The colors are brighter, last longer, and are so high-resolution that they are virtually continuous tone, rather than tiny dots. The range, or "gamut" of color for gicleés is far beyond that of lithography. Lithography uses tiny dots of four colors--cyan, magenta, yellow and black--to fool the eye into seeing various hues and shades. Colors are "created" by printing different size dots of these four colors. Gicleés use technology that sprays ink onto the page, actually mixing the inks on the page to create true colors.

Lake Afton Library - Built in 1879, “The Yardley Library”, as it is affectionately known by the locals, has always been the focal point of this small colonial town. In the spring and summer, the Library that sets beside the calm waters of Lake Afton, attracts many fisherman, both young and old . On chilly winter days many congregate in the heart of the town to skate in the shadows of the old library. (See William Double’s "Skater") All year round visitors enjoy the ducks that have taken up residence next to the old library.

Plans to demolish the old library to allow construction of a new bridge that was to replace the one washed away in the flood of ’55 met with strong community opposition. The Scudders Falls Bridge was built instead, and an important part of the history of the town was preserved. The building remained in use as a library until 1977. It’s book collection was subsequently moved to the Lower Makefield Municipal Complex. The library that served the community for almost 100 years is now the home of the Yardley Historical Association.

Thompson-Neely House - The Thompson-Neely House is nationally recognized as a fine example of early 18th century architecture. It was here that General Lord Stirling as well as a 19 year old Lieutenant James Monroe spent the winter of 1776. Wounded in the battle of Trenton, James Monroe later became the 5th President of the United States. Thompson-Neely House was the site where George Washington planned the Battle of Trenton.

James Redding in his unique watercolor style captures the Thompson-Neely House in the evening after a fresh snow has fallen. The glow of the moon seems to illuminate the trees, and the smoke curls invitingly from the chimneys, beckoning the viewer to come inside and escape the chilly winter's eve.

Taylorsville - This lovely street scene captures just a few of the buildings that were a part of the 19th century village of Taylorsville. The Taylorsville Store, an actual working general store & post office, once was a meeting place for townspeople in colonial times. Taylorsville Store was owned and operated by Mahlon Taylor beginning in 1828. He served as Taylorsville's Postmaster for almost 40 years.

James Redding demonstrates his unique ability to capture mood, as well as his keen attention to detail in the scene. The setting is early spring. The fruit trees are in full bloom and the sun is shining. A perfect day for a stroll down the street to the general store.

Schofield Ford Covered Bridge - The Schofield Ford Covered Bridge originally built in 1873 by contractor George L. Mahon, was long a dearly loved landmark in rural Bucks County, PA. In 1991 vandals set fire to the 117 year old bridge which spans the Neshaminy Creek in Tyler State Park.

Local politicians, religious, community and business leaders joined school children, 4 H and others to raise the nearly $350,000.00 for the project to restore the 170 ft. long bridge. Every effort was made to make the new bridge as authentic as the original. The 6 year effort to rebuild the County's 12th covered bridge officially ended with a dedication ceremony in September 1997.

Inn at the Crossing - Inspired by the Bernard Taylor House (now known as the Washington Crossing Inn), the artist takes us back in time to the era of horse drawn carriages and colonial stone architecture which was characteristic of Bucks County's landscape in the early 17th century. In the winter in colonial times it was a common sight to see the horse drawn sleighs about the town of Taylorsville...the driver perched on the spring seat in front with the passengers huddled in blankets in the back. The sleigh bells played a merry melody with the clip-clop of the horses hooves. In this scene the driver has stopped at the Inn for some shelter and a warm meal, while the carriage horse waits patiently for its driver to reappear. The scene is set at night, adding a luminous quality to the freshly fallen snow.

Crystal Springs Farm - Crystal Springs Farm circa 1760, with weathered red frame and stone barn, sits on the hill overlooking a tranquil pond. As the geese relax in the reflection of the water, the horses in the corral graze peacefully. The stucco stone house is classic Bucks County version of Federal style farmhouse.

James Redding captures the timeless scene with a masterful use of color and delicate, yet meticulous attention to detail, drawing the viewer deeper into the scene. From the stone stabling on the barn to the downy feathers of the geese, you are almost certain to find new treasures with every look.

Rich in historical heritage, Crystal Springs Farm was home to General Samuel A. Smith, who fought as a captain with George Washington in the Battle of Trenton. Samuel A. Smith's son, Andrew J. Smith, also distinguished himself as a general in the Civil War.

Pennsbury Manor - William Penn (1644-1718), statesman, diplomat, and founder of Pennsylvania, planned and built Pennsbury Manor as his private estate in the colony he established as his holy experiment in 1681. Pennsylvania was a testing ground for Penn's idea of government based on religious freedom, ethnic diversity and fairness for all people.

The reconstructed manor house and its formal courtyard look out onto the scenic Delaware River. Penn chose this location, 26 miles north of the city of Philadelphia (the city he founded), because of his great love of country life. Penn's prayer for Philadelphia (included on each print) is evidence of his great commitment to the city he loved.

The Farmstead - The Buckman Farmstead is a well known and well loved farmstead in historic Newtown. The barn is stone and frame with a gable roof surmounted by a cupola. Located at the intersection of Sycamore Street and Swamp Road "Lovett Farm" as it is more popularly known, stands as a reminder of Newtown's heritage as a farming community.

The groupings of farm buildings is of immense value to Newtown, for it represents the last surviving agriculturally related structures located directly adjacent to the borough. The land on which these buildings are located were first settled by William Buckman in the early 1700's. This land remained in the possession of the Buckman family for nearly three centuries, the longest continuous ownership by one family in the history of Newtown.

The artist has truly captured the serenity of the past and combined it with the stately presence of the structure in this lovely watercolor. The artist's attention to detail preserves the grand nature of the buildings, while letting us muse about simpler time in the borough.

Indian Summer James Redding painted Indian Summer on one of those breathtakingly beautiful days after summer has come and gone then decides to gloriously reappear for a short period. The day was washed in sunlight, the leaves had all fallen from the trees, and the shadows playing across the barn and gravel were intense. The artist captures the scene delighting in the rugged texture of the wood and stone in the barn and out buildings.

Pemaquid Point Light - One of Maine's most picturesque lighthouses, Pemaquid Point Light, was built in 1827 and marks the entrance to St. John's Bay. This is one of Maine's most historic areas near the location of what was the first settlement in the New World. The tower has rubble stone walls, which are three feet thick at the top. Joining the tower is the study keeper's house. The little outbuilding with the bell once stored fuel to power the light. The early keepers used to grow their own crops and the station was nearly self-sufficient. Pemaquid Point Light is now a museum and is open to the public.

Kathleen - This lovely porcelain doll was found in an antique shop. The doll was nestled in an old coach amidst a combination of calico pillows, and bedding.

With his trademark attention to detail, the artist painstakingly captures the entire scene in fine detail. From the chipped tooth of the doll and intricate patterns of the calico pillows, to the fine lace of the doll's dress, this painting is a veritable feast for the eyes. Look closely at the right leg of the pantaloons and you will find the name of the artist's daughter Katie who was the inspiration for the painting's name.

McConkey's Ferry - The original inn and tavern constructed on the property of Samuel McConkey and operated by James Brown, was built of local fieldstone. The west side of the inn is believed to have been erected in the mid 18th century. The property was sold to Benjamin Taylor in 1777, who then added the east side of the inn in the late 18th century. Taylor's descendants established the 19th century village of Taylorsville.

According to tradition, this is where Washington and his aides ate their Christmas dinner and conducted their final meeting before the journey across the Delaware River that stormy Christmas night in December 1776. That night, 2400 troops crossed the river to battle the Hessian regiments and capture the city of Trenton, Washington's first victory in the Revolutionary War.

James Redding captures the essence of the fieldstone and rustic architecture in this historic structure.
