"Waiting in Wellfleet"

"Waiting in Wellfleet"
Oil on Canvas
Framed, contemporary float frame with black liner.

auction: starting bid $175
Special price - Buy it now $400
Permanent price after auction $590

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.

Note: Get the best value by bidding in the auction, or by using the buy it now button if you can't wait or take a chance. When the auction is over, the painting will revert to the permanent price if unsold.
