Provincetown Wanderings

8x8 Oil on Stretched Canvas

We travelled to P-town for a date this weekend- great street scenes- wonderful people watching- loads of wonderful galleries.  I had a chance to visit the Anne Packard gallery- one of my all time favorite Cape artists.  Her work is amazing, evoking all that is wonderful about Cape Cod and Provincetown in particular.  I found myself feeling honored to be a painter- to share in some minuscule and remote way this craft with someone who is so talented in ways I can never hope to approach.  Still, we paint.  All of us who do can share in the joy of color and challenge and light and shadow.  We can see the world in different perspectives and notice details in the life around us.   Greatful on this Sunday morning.

I had some fun outside yesterday.  This is a special little place for lake friends and I wanted to capture a perfect summer morning.

Joy in July

8x10 Oil on Panel

I am really pleased with this one.  After a couple of weeks of painting frustration, I relaxed and focused on this great scene near Harpswell, ME.  A quilt artist had proudly displayed her work for sale- beautiful  works and a wonderfully sunny scene.  Joy in July is my theme for all things this month, and this really made me happy.

Cape Marsh Abstracted

8 X10 Oil on Panel

After working on the large piece, I thought I would play a bit more loosely with shapes.  I'd like to move more toward abstraction.  This is not abstract, but I did paint with braid loose strokes and no detail, just representative patterns and shapes.  I like the result!

Cape Marsh '16

24 x 30 Oil on Stretched Canvas

I decided to work on this large piece from a small sketch I had completed some time ago.  My summer goal is to complete several larger works in hopes of beginning to approach galleries and perhaps mount a show.  I love this journey!
