Seashore Painting trip

Mia and I traveled to painting spots and galleries in Cape Cod, Maine and Cape Ann last week. It was a whirlwind tour, complete with pink chair, overnight items, and two artist's supplies and wet paintings. We painted in Yarmouthport, Chatham, Wellfleet, and Sandwich and took photos at many more spots.

Near the end of our time together, Mia and I spent a day touring galleries in Maine and then a finale at the Nubble Lighthouse. Ahh, the perfect spot! Beauty, admirers, restroom and gift shop, and even a seafood restaurant!

One wonderful Cape Cod stop was at the Chatham Fish Pier. There is a observation deck above the fishermen bringing in their catch. We had a great view of the flats and houses, boats, and buildings. But the best part was watching the seals try to get the fishermen to throw them some fish pieces!

Another great stop was Wellfleet. We found a perfect spot next to a building with shade and a great view! I found myself carefully positioning "Mom" exactly under the church steeple in the center of the picture. Later looking at it, I realized that this painting empahasizes Mom's central love in life besides her family: her church. The art I create is always zeroing in on the truth and I can usually only read it later.
