cape cod boats

16"x 20" oil
I find rows of boats to be like Philip Glass' music. Orchestrations of the same things over and over and over again with very small changes. For some people it's like fingernails on a chalkboard. For me it's like getting out of school. I already want to tweak this but will leave it and do a variation from a different perspective.
Last weeks show in Westhampton was fantastic. Good sales and met great people with all kinds of future possibilities, including a cottage to stay in when I go up to Plein air paint.(I just need to give her a little painting for rent. I'm cool with that!) Also, just received the letter from Old town Chicago. I passed the show jury and will be doing that show next year! Slammin! It's one of the top shows in the country and so far was my best show this year. Here's the clincher, I may be doing a commission for the Hotel Hershey. Yep, Hershey Pa. It's a very high end establishment. They're renovating the whole place and want me to do a painting of the original hotel including some of the landscape. They buy the painting and next thing you know they have giclees in various rooms around the hotel of my piece. Pretty cool. I gave 'em a price and haven't heard back. Fingers crossed, I'd love that gig....The Alexandria show is this weekend but I plan on another post and a link to the show.

Thanks Sam. The Hershey thing didn't work out but other stuff is rollin' along.
