Deep and darkPosted: June 18, 2013
I have many thanks to send out today. The first one goes to Mary Kay Carbone of Four Winds Pottery in Rockport who found my work online, bought some prints to sell in her shop and encouraged me to spend some time painting in Cape Ann. This is truly a special place.
Secondly, thanks to my friend Fleet Woodley who suggested I try M. Graham paints, which I am experimenting with this week and really liking for their creaminess and saturation.
Lastly, thanks to Don at Island Art and Hobby in Gloucester who carries the M. Graham paints in his shop and who suggested I visit Halibut State Park because I might like the granite quarries. You were right Don. Not only did I love the spot but I also liked reading about how the place got its name: sailing ships rounding Cape Ann would “haul about” off this point of land.
