I have had a busy winter painting my Cape Cod seascapes and landscapes. It feels like coming out of a long hibernation.<br /><br />It was a long, cold snowy winter, but in my studio I spent the winter looking at photos of warm beach days, grass lined beach paths and calm blue seas. One of the things I try to get across in my work is the feeling of being right there. As I put my brush strokes on the canvas, I go back in time and mentally experience the sights, sounds, smells and feel of whatever the conditions I am painting, whether that be sun or fog. So despite the snow flying outside I was right back on a July day on Millway beach or watching the fog lift at Sandy Neck.<br /><br />Not a bad way to spend the winter. &nbsp;</span></div><div><br /><br /><br /></div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div> Wed, 24 Apr 2013 08:19:23 CDT My Cape Cod seascape and landscape oil paintings exhibit <div> <span class="messageBody" data-ft='{"type":3}'>Thanks to all who came to the reception last night for my exhibit of Cape Cod seascapes and landscapes at the&nbsp;<a href="http://www.cultural-center.org/" target="_blank"><strong>Cultural Center of Cape Cod</strong></a> in South Yarmouth. My framed oil paintings will be there through Sunday, May 6.<br /><br />If you've never been to the center, and find yourself on Cape Cod looking for something to do, be sure to stop by. The center does a remarkable job of featuring a range of artistic and cultural events, exhibits, classes, and workshops&nbsp;all year 'round.<br />&nbsp;<br />For example, tonight the George Gritzbach R&amp;B Band performs, tomorrow afternoon is a spring music festival by Cape and Islands music teachers and students, Table Fran&#231;aise (for lovers of all things French) meets on Wednesday, and the Grapevine Wine Club meets May 7.<br /><br />There's always an art exhibit in&nbsp;the main room as well as three side rooms. My exhibit is in the boardroom, immediately to the left as you come in the front door. You can find a list of all uncoming events and exhibits on the center's <a href="http://www.cultural-center.org/happenings.html" target="_blank"><strong>calendar page on its website</strong></a>.<br /><br />The center is a wonderful resource for Cape Cod, and a great place to visit to capture a piece of the artistic and cultural scene&nbsp;of the Cape. The address and phone number is:<br /><br />Cultural Center of Cape Cod<br />307 Old Main Street<br />South Yarmouth, Massachusetts 02664<br />508-394-7100<br /><br />The gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.<br /><br />By the way, I'll be in another exhibit at the center in June: the <strong>Northside Painters of Cape Cod</strong>, of which I'm a member, is having a joint exhibit in the main room with the <a href="http://www.southcapeartists.com/" target="_blank"><strong>South Cape Artists</strong></a>. It's called "North Meets South" and should be a lor of fun. It will be open daily from Wednesday, June 13 through Sunday, June 24.<br /><br />Hope to see you there!</span></div><div>&nbsp;</div> Sat, 28 Apr 2012 12:21:05 CDT
