This little painting was done on location during a workshop I took on Cape Cod a few years ago. The instructor was Charles Sovek, an artist I greatly admire and respect. He passed away two years ago, and I felt as if I'd lost a dear friend, even though I had just gotten to know him briefly during the workshop. My painting is not nearly as bright and vibrant as the examples he painted that day. It was rainy and windy and I seemed to capture some of the grayness of the scene instead. But, to be out painting that week with a great artist in an amazing place was an experience I'll never forget.
