Being a Colorado native, what amazes me about the East Coast is how much water can be found in the area. On our way to Cape Cod, along the New England coast, we were greeted by several bogs, lakes and eventually the ocean. These dreamy landscapes are not exact locations, but inspired by our drive.

Made to coordinate with “Along the Road to Cape Cod 1”.

Sailboats – Work in Progress

This is an unfinished piece that I am currently working on. I started it in late January, mixed all my colors and was ready to dig right in.

But then life happened and I experienced a loss I had never known before when my father passed away February 2. My world was rocked and the painting remained unpainted as my colors began to dry on my pallet.

When I was finally ready to get back into it, most of my acrylics were on the verge of drying out. I scraped and squeezed whatever remaining wet pigment I could get from them before they finally dried out on me. The underlying color structure has been set, but I still need to push and pull more values into the piece to make it stronger, crisper image. As soon as I am able, I’ll crack open the acrylic tubes once more and finish this piece in dedication to the man who encouraged me to chase after my dreams.
