Low Tide

I was looking through some photos to get inspired and came across this scene that was sent to me a few years ago by John Jay at the Inn at Cook Street. This is a beautiful time of day in Provincetown when the tide is out and the boats look like they are up on the shore. I loved the complementary colors that dominate in this piece, the depth of field, and the solitary boat as the focal point. So fitting for summertime.

Stay tuned for some information on a palette knife painting workshop that Polo and I will be teaching September 29 and 30 at The Inn at Cook Street!

The Red Inn number 13

The Red Inn XIII

On this July 13, I bring to you the 13th in my series of paintings of the red inn. This painting was created especially for David, one of the owners of this beautiful place. He requested that I include two things-the statue in remembrance of Reenie (on the left side in the garden) and Oliver, the beloved black lab mascot of the inn that you saw in my last post (towards the front near the archway).

Here is a close up of Oliver:

A new pet portrait commission : : OLIVER

This adorable black lab was the mascot, buddy, and companion to all who visited the red inn in Provincetown, MA. He recently passed away and a friend wanted to commission this piece for Oliver's owner. It now hangs at the inn for all to see and remember this beloved dog.
