Welcome!

Welcome to the OLD STONE STUDIO web site. Here you will find information about the variety of art and paper-related items offered by Charles Herrick of Mason, Michigan.

I specialize in "PORTRAITS" of your home, business, pet, car, etc., rendered in watercolor or pastel. See examples by clicking here.

Click here to view a sampling of ORIGINAL PAINTINGS in watercolor, oil, and pastel. Many of these plus others are featured in the 2016 “Art in the Barn” Show and sale (23rd annual). They can be seen and purchased from Friday, July 29 through Sunday, August 7, noon to 9:00 each day. Visit us in the unique setting of the 2008 Michigan “Barn of the Year," located west of Mason, south of Holt, at 4666 Bunker Rd. (follow the signs). Phone 517-628-3084 for more information.

Also available at this show are hundreds of original magazine covers, ads, and illustrations in vintage frames, matted with acid-free materials. In addition there will be some original artwork, framed and unframed, by artists other than Charles Herrick.

Also, browse through hundreds of thousands of additional, highly categorized ads and other unframed, “single page” items. Click here to see the lengthy list of these original paper items for sale.

I offer thousands of intact vintage magazines, mostly LIFE, published as a weekly from 1937 to 1972, but also other general interest magazines, such as POST, LOOK, COLLIERS, HOLIDAY, etc. For cover pictures and complete descriptions of LIFE issues, please go to my eBay store, Magz-n-Ads.
