Oil with palette knives on Ampersand Gessobord
Rob asked me if I would paint this as a birthday gift for his fiancé, Steve. The inn is a special place for them and he wanted a special gift to commemorate their relationship. They live in Cincinnati but were planning on a visit to Provincetown in June for Steve's birthday. Rob gave Steve the painting before they left on their trip. Rob wrote "Steve absolutely loved the painting. We actually went to The Red Inn for dinner and saw your paintings in the hallway, which made the gift even more special."
I also found out that Steve and I also graduated from the same college, Miami University of Ohio. We went there years apart so we did not know each other.
XL in the title means this is number 40! The 40th time I've painted this beautiful place at the tip of Cape Cod.
