This past weekend I made a trip to Provincetown, MA from Boston with my girlfriend, Jenna. We left early Saturday morning on the Boston Harbor Cruise Fast Ferry with our bikes. Upon our arrival, we found our bed and breakfast and then familiarized ourselves with Commercial Street and other local landmarks. Provincetown is dense and full of rich culture. Every restaurant and store front has paintings or art in them, and we saw many artists creating work around the town. This is along with the multitude of unique galleries within this small area.
As we walked through the town, gallery hopping, we came to the Kobalt Gallery, where we found the work of a fellow AIB alum and friend, Sean Flood. It was great to see his gritty urban landscapes. His skill and execution in his paintings allowed for a unique and dynamic view of familiar metropolitan areas, including New York and Boston. If you are in P-town on August 2nd, check out his opening from 7-10pm at the Kobalt Gallery. It should be an exciting show and I hope to make it for this event.
Being in this artistically inspiring town made me eager to paint. I was able to complete a few small paintings from my pochade box (small painting sketch box, photograph above) while we were there, and an image of one of these paintings of the Provincetown harbor is below.
It was a fun and relaxing trip that was also artistically motivating. If you ever have a chance to visit, I highly recommend it.
