Cape Cod Scenery

One extra benefit of training for the PMC on the Cape was exploring different areas of the Cape. I took a detour down Wing Neck rd one day and came across a beautiful light house right at the end of the point. I took a few photos and came up with this version, below. It is on a gallery wrap canvas.

This light house is now a private residence and can be rented. The original light house burned down and this one was rebuilt with the light house detached from the main house in the late 1800's.  It is pretty stunning when the light hits it right.

Also, there are plenty of interesting sites in Sandwich. Here is my version of the Old Grist Mill on Shawme Pond. It is still functioning and they give interesting tours of the mill showing it in  action.

Finally, here is my take of the boardwalk across the estuary leading to Town Neck Beach. This is one of the iconic sites of Sandwich and is very popular with kids at high tide and kayakers all the time.

Busy month of December

This month I will be participating in 2 shows as well as displaying my artwork at my "home" gallery in Sandwich.

 First, I will have 3 paintings from our Paris sejour on display for the Small Works Show at the Gallery 9 in Norwood. Click on the link for details. There is a reception on Friday the 6th from 6-8. There will be a lot of great art work at very reasonable prices. The work will be on display for the month of December.

Next, I have a number of large and small paintings on display at the Studio Brush and Gallery in Sandwich where I am one of the Co-op artists. Our show for December is called the Merchant Square Holiday Celebration. We will have an opening on Saturday the 7th from 1-5. This is a very eclectic gallery with a working studio. The gallery is located on 6A next to Cafe Chew and the Sandwich P.O. We have a wide variety of oil paintings, pastels, acrylics, giclees, photography and jewelry all priced to sell. Stop by for the opening or any time during the month. I'll be manning the gallery on Sundays and Mondays through December.

Lastly, my painting group, the Neponset Valley Artists (NVA) is having a showing of winter related art work at the Walpole Public library for the month of December. The walls of the main meeting room are adorned with a wide assortment of winter and holiday related themes. Please stop by to check it out.
