Bird and Buttercups on Blue


8x8 oil on panel

Available at Auction on Daily Paintworks
Starting bid $89

I felt that we needed something spring like and decided on this little bird perched on a metal jug with some buttercups. So you know it wasn't done in February! I am very happy with this little (8x8) piece. I like the light on the bird, and the fresh buttercups bouncing against the blue wall leaving cool shadows. It was challenging to get the dull bronze container correct with some highlights but not too many. It's just a happy piece!

This is the last in the Cape Cod Series from June 2014. I'll be back!  Here I found a couple sunbathing and just hanging around while the sun glimmered on the water. Ah, how nice, how lovely, how I'd like to be there right now!  I love the snow fence and its purple and blue shadows in this one!

This is from the same place I painted from yesterday at the National Seashore Visitor Center in Eastham on Cape Cod. Looking to the right is a place where people get their kayaks and gather to paddle out together. It's fun to watch them. In the distance is marsh and ocean, and to the right is a walkway. Ah, another great summer day to remember when it is -5 degrees outside.

A favorite place on Cape Cod is the Salt Pond National Seashore Visitor Center in Eastham. It has everything you need, from helpful rangers, bathrooms, maps, and a gorgeous view out of the back. This is it, and my back is about 20 feet from the door, and I am on a patio.  Down below, you see people walking and kayaks getting ready to go explore, marsh, streams, and ocean in the distance plus an iconic little cabin that is positioned just right. I have painted this place three times because I like it so much!

My husband came to the Cape for the weekend so I brought him along on a painting expedition. We went to the Cape Cod Canal Visitor Center in Sandwich, just over the bridge. Found a great place to set up - a picnic shelter! shade! and a bathroom nearby. Life is good sometimes. The walkway in front of us along the canal was quite alive with people of all types walking by on their way to the beach to the right here, or just strolling. Quite a few had fishing gear. These three were set up near me and although they weren't quite that close together, that's what we call artistic license! It was fun to paint -I got most of the figures and all of the landscape right on site and only needed a few touch ups later. The figures did make it a longer painting to do - there is no way around that complexity.

This was a fun day! We went to visit the Chatham Fish Pier on cape Cod, where fishing boats bring their catch in. It's a big operation and they have provided a viewing platform right on top of  the area where the boats come in. You look down rignt into the boats and watch as the fish are put in a big hopper and raised up to be put into massive barrels. It is QUITE a show! Part of the fun is that, where there are fishing boats, there are seals. They love getting the guts and other delicacies that the fishermen throw overboard. Well this little guy had obviously had a good meal before he glided away from the dock on his back, smile on his face. I took several photos of him, and this was the winner that got made into a painting.

Where there are seals, there are sharks, but that's another story. Just be sure to check conditions before you go swimming near Chatham!

When I was in Seconsett painting on Cape Cod, every day I went past a certain curve in the road that bordered the little harbor and beach - a private place of peace. I painted there a couple of times and also took pictures. Above the scene an osprey family was watching the activity below and never seemed to be bothered by the people or traffic - it was their own little world up there. I was glad to get the shot and be able to do this piece in the studio.

There's a wonderful bayside beach off Rte 6A (the scenic route up Cape Cod, all cottages, flowers, marshes, and great shops). It's called Gray's Beach and it has a great boardwalk that takes you way out into the marsh. It is to the left of this scene. I paint here frequently - parking is easy as long as it is not high beach season and there are lots of views to see. The tide comes and goes. When I did this it was low tide and what artists call "the magic hour" when the light is intense and warm as the sun starts its downward journey. The time is so often short to catch the light and often you just have to take a picture. This time however, I painted it on site and am pleased with how that green just glows.

Wellfleet is just far enough along Cape Cod to make you think you went a long, long way. It's not as far as Truro or Provincetown, but almost. The crowds thin out and the pace slows. Entering the town, there seems to be just enough shops and places to eat. And in the center of it all is a long long town dock. On this day I had been looking for someplace to paint in the shade. I looked and looked but it just didn't happen. So I rigged up a regular umblella and managed to get out of the sun for a little bit. But it really was hot and bright and I persisted. This little sailboat was sitting in the marsh looking like it was waiting for its owners to come back from the city for a relaxing weekend. In this case, I decided it was worth sitting there in the sun, because it made such a nice pattern on the hull of the boat.
