I'm a full-time oil painter living in the North Bay. Can be painting vineyards in Napa within 30 minutes of leaving my home or paint within walking distance of where I live on Mare Island. Impressionist Plein Air painting is my passion.
They sell oysters at my local farmers market. I've wanted to paint oysters for a long time. With some recent rainy weather, the time was right. I'm pleased with the finished still life. I hope you agree.
My provincetown paint trip is still alive in my memory. Not only did I enjoy fantastic fish and chips for lunch at the Lobster Pot, a return visit for lobster was superb. This is a restaurant the locals go to so you know it's good. If you've ever been to Provincetown, you could walk to the downtown scene shown above.
Another night, I ate at Victor's which I highly recommend, especially the Deconstructed Ahi Tuna Napoleon. The Carpe Diem Guesthouse was a wonderful B&B. It has a great central location, delicious breakfast and serves wonderful wines in the evening. Enjoyed meeting couples from around the world.
I must have lived in the New England in a former life as I am continually drawn to that area. I recently returned from a nine day paint trip. I painted the St. Charles River several times (see above). I also went to Provincetown for the first time. It was a little early in the year, but two of the days had perfect weather.
