Colorful Provincetown

Colorful Provincetown
24" x 36"
Oil with a palette knife on Ampersand Gessobord
On view at Cafe Heaven in Provincetown

This painting was inspired by the view from the Pilgrim Monument in Provincetown. It was our first time climbing to the top and boy was it worth it. You can see a gorgeous 360 degree view of Provincetown and the surrounding area. I liked how they have Boston area town signs carved into the walls all the way up. It keeps you busy while you are climbing and you forget how many steps it is. We were excited when we found the Walpole sign.

Here are some photos of the painting in progress as well as some close up shots that show the painting texture.

For those of you who don't know what the Pilgrim Monument looks like, click here to see a painting I did of it back in 2014.

My 10 year blogiversary!

Summer Flowers
8" x 6"
Oil with a palette knife

I can't believe I started this blog 10 years ago! I thought it fitting to post one of the very first paintings I did with the palette knife back in 2007. I remember buying this bouquet of summer flowers from the farmers market in town and setting it up on the kitchen table at home. That was the start of it all. This painting is framed now sits in my office as a reminder of where I have been.

Happy New Year to you and yours from me and my blog.
