Provincetown Hydrangeas

 I've been AWOL from my blog due to the move back from Provincetown and the re-entry if you will. I had a fabulous week at my shed on the Pier, though I was somewhat chagrined to find out that people would rather buy (imported) shell Christmas ornaments than real art. 
My Shed mate Eileen Counihan and I got along famously because we have the same (snarky) sense of humor about cheap goods from China among other things. She is doing something special with her wonderful night sky photos of "Starry, Starry Nights" so check them out at A Gallery in Provincetown if you're there.

Wednesday, I went on the annual 'Jeep' trip with my fellow painter girlfriends to.....drum roll..... Provincetown. Yep, I can't get enough of this unique and beautiful place and the weather was perfect. We set up on the street and at one point Paula had to move the leg of her easel to let a car out of a driveway. Tight quarters there. I set up in front of a garden that I admire and photograph every summer but have never painted. This is the result. It was a perfect summer day!

Here is my fabulous Trap Shed in Provincetown and a beautiful night shot. We are having a great time but my expectations for sales at the shed have not been met. Luckily my shed mate and I are birds of a feather in many ways including our 'dark' humor. We've been blessed with a good breeze which was more of a gale today and a beautiful view no matter how you cut it. My bother Lenny is also in town with his girlfriend Kathi and their dog Chandler so we've been busy eating out and drinking at the Old Colony Tap and people watching. Life is good. Notice Don in the background reading his book.

That's Classic

I once owned a VW just like this one. It was a powder blue, 1963 with a sunroof which slid open the entire length of the roof. It was classic and I did love it. I frequently see this car around Provincetown and think I gotta paint it. So I did.
Notice that I'm not putting up the buy now buttons as I have to hoard some of these paintings for my Shed Show which will begin a week from today :D   Maybe the owner of this car will come by and say "HEY, that's my car. Can I buy that painting?" and I'll say......"sure." ;)

Provincetown Shed

 Truro Gem 12x12
I've painted this iconic Truro cottage before because it is just too cool. This is one of the paintings I will be showing in my upcoming "Shed Show" on MacMillan Wharf in Provincetown. In addition to a great selection of paintings, including my daily 6x6 blog paintings I've also done up a selection of cards and matted prints of my work in various (easy to frame) standard sizes ;) 
The dates are Monday, July 18th through Sunday July 24th from 10-whenever. Stop by and see me!

Beach Baby

Beach Baby 6"x6" oil on Raymar panel
Happy Independence Day! Last night Don and I took a ride around our neighborhood {prompted by a power outage ;)} all the way down to Brant Rock.  I never saw such crowds and lawn parties and the most fabulous fireworks display was taking place over the beaches all the way down the shore. SPECTACULAR! 
This is Colin last summer at the beach. He says it doesn't look like him ;)

Oh Canada

I spotted this kayaker in Naples this winter and knew I would have to post a painting of him today in honor of our friends, relatives and neighbors to the North. Today is Canada Day, formerly known as Dominion Day. This is also going up on Girls Just Wanna Paint as the subject for this month's theme, 'foreign'. Take a look at what the girls have posted. Happy 4th to all of us here in America the beautiful.
