Pears want to be "IN' like the Tomatoes

I actually began this painting last year and set it aside unfinished. I often paint over old paintings but yesterday decided to 'Doctor' this old one up using a palette knife and changing the composition. It came alive for me. Now many other freshly harvested local vegetables and fruits are begging to be painted next! Not a problem. Palette knife has a mind of it's own.

Organic Heirlooms

Eating [and painting ] tomatoes are one of the major joys of late August. Garden tomatoes all used to be delicious but it seems unless they are 'heirloom' they taste like store bought winter tomatoes. What is up with that ? FOOD INC

Famous Landmark in the center of P-Town
Bustling Commercial Street, filled with Galleries
This is not Napa Valley but Truro's own vineyard!

The Outer Cape is really gorgeous. Are the lazy beach days of summer over?

Old Cape Cod

I am squeezing the last weeks of Summer out with my weekly road trips. This is beautiful Chatham. I hardly captured the really gorgeous light and sparkle this Cape town displays. Old, historical elegance. Lots of commotion over closed beaches for swimming due to the sharks in the ocean.

Nature at it's finest

The WORKSHOP was fun. We probably painted on THE hottest days of the summer. It was broiling but there was no stopping this crowd!
