Race Point Ranger Station, Provincetown

Race Point Ranger Station
24" x 18"
Oil with a palette knife on Blick Cradled Artist Board

This painting worked up quickly while working at the Art Gallery at Patriot Place a few weeks back. I finished it in one session. The photo I used for reference was taken in the fall on Race Point in Provincetown and the lighting was spectacular.

Pepe's and progress

Lunch at Pepe’s Wharf
18” x 24”
Oil with a palette knife on cradled panel

This is one of our favorite spots to have lunch in Ptown, Pepe's Wharf. It has an amazing view of the water and also amazing drinks. One of my personal favorites is the negroni. I added a few negronis into the painting for fun. Can you spot them?

I like to think of this painting as a modern day "Lucheon of the Boating Party" by Auguste Renoir. Kind of fun, right?

I took some progress shots along the way. There was a lot of detail in this image so just like Renoir's painting, it took several sessions to complete.

 And I also took some close ups so you can see the texture and details.

While summer is winding down here in New England, I like to look at this painting and anticipate being out there again next summer for a cocktail and delicious lunch.

This is number 35...yes, that's right, the 35th time I have painted this magical place in Provincetown. We were just there last weekend to deliver more paintings and I heard that this painting had sold, so Yay!

New Pet Portrait : : Mischa

8" x 8"
Oil with a palette knife on Blick Studio Artist board

This beautiful girl belongs to my beautiful step daughter, Marissa who turned 30 this year. I painted this portrait of Mischa as a special surprise gift for her birthday which was on August 25. 

Here is Mischa checking herself out. The portrait will hang here by Mischa's window spot with the nice view. 

 I think she approves.
