Window Shopping

Oil with palette knives on Ampersand Gessobord

As you stroll down Commercial Street in Provincetown on Cape Cod, you get several glimpses to the ocean through peepholes like this one while you shop. This painting was inspired by one of those views. We are still hoping to bring some new paintings down to The Red Inn in Ptown at some point soon. In the meantime, we'll just have to enjoy painting the beautiful views from afar.

A touching commission : : Expecting

Magdalena asked if I would paint this cute commission for her brother and sister-in-law. It was inspired by a photo shoot that the couple had done right before their new baby was born. So sweet.

Oh how I miss this scene from a wonderful weekend on Nantucket with artist friends a few years ago. I finally got around to painting it as a reminder that summer is right around the bend.

Provincetown Library Interior

Studying the View (Inside the Provincetown Library)

One of the things I miss during this time of staying at home quarantining is visiting the library. I miss our local library so much, The Walpole Public Library. They just recently began delivering books to your home and of course I immediately started taking advantage of it. But nothing beats visiting in person so I look forward to when I can go back.

One of my other favorite libraries is the Provincetown Library on Commercial Street at the tip of Cape Cod. I recommend a visit to anyone who in in Provincetown. Inside this library there is a replicate of a ship which takes up a whole floor. It's amazing. Also the views from inside are incredible. One of the last times we visited, I saw this light coming inside and creating interesting shadows on the floor and knew I would paint it some day. I don't normally paint interiors but I really enjoyed this so I hope to do some more.

I was deliberately trying to be looser with my painting technique and layering of colors which I hope you can see from these close up detail images.
