Provincetown at Dusk

I applied and was chosen to show my work in a Trap Shed on McMillan Wharf in Provincetown for the week of July 18-24. About a half dozen of these little sheds are rented out to artists with the approval of the Pier Corporation and are fairly new to the Wharf scene.  I visited with some of the artists this past summer and wanted to go for it since I've always felt a connection to Provincetown and love painting there. The beauty of the location is that everyone who comes by boat has to walk right by these sheds. That would be many hundreds of people each day :D This scene is from Bradford Street looking toward the Pilgrim Monument. I never get tired of the beauty of this place.

What a lovely idea with the little shacks and the exposure you'll receive from the public. Congratulations & hope it proves to be both a wonderful growing experience and fruitful. Love your paintings always.
