"Jetty and Catboats"
12" x 16" - Oil on panel on canvas
Throughout my career I have often returned to Brewster, Massachusetts in Cape Cod, the place I began painting coastal landscapes. It was there, back in the early eighties, that I saw my first catboat beached on the flats at low tide. I was attracted to its shape and in particular its reflection in the tidal pool at dawn and made a painting based on that experience. This painting, “Jetty and Catboats,” and so many others followed that experience.
