As part of the Creative Convergence show at Addison Art Gallery in Orleans, MA each artist is also submitting one or two paintings to the Cape Cod Museum of Art in Dennis, MA.
I hadn't decided what to paint for that part of our show yet as of last night. This morning I went into my studio with a sudden awareness of what and how I wanted to paint for the CCMA show. The two pieces below are the two I painted today to be shown.
Time was of the essence as it's time to frame and ship the work to Addison and to the Museum. Hope you enjoy these both.

While on the trip, I didn't spend a lot of time on the pier painting. But at night it always caught my attention as a beautiful display of lights, warm and cool notes and all of that being reflected into the harbor waters. That's what I decided to paint for the first of the two pieces today.

While on the Cape in Provincetown we all spent a lot of time walking the streets into and back out of town to the houses where we were staying. The walks were always a real treat right at dusk, when the lights of the stores and town would come on and create a brand new visual treat for the eyes. When the skies were clear, the contrast between the bright sky and the dark corridor of the PTown houses and businesses were a painting in waiting.
