Heading off to the Cape to paint

Near the Secret Spot-9x12
if you like it contact me and i'll give you availability and price

Another piece from my Ocracoke trip. this was the coolest house in the sun and the boat in the yard was the icing on the cake. had to paint it! its soooo ocracoke
this ones totally knifed with lots of thick paint, cape school style.
Packing tonite for my two week trip to Cape Cod to paint for my solo show at Elizabeth Rowley Gallery in Orleans. will paint non-stop and all pieces in the show will be done in that two weeks. sort of a marathon paint-out and show at the end of the thing! stress? naaahhh, i love a challenge.

Sounds like a great trip. Maybe not this time, but if you haven't done the before, take a detour to Onset, just before Buzzard's Bay and Bourne off Rte 25. Street after street of decorated cottages, some tiny. Example (not my photo):
