A New Painting Experience
Here it is, July 1, and I am back home in Northampton. I returned yesterday from Provincetown, MA, where I had a glorious month of painting and only the dishes to do as a contribution to a household. We were very neat, and of course we all shared in the maintenance of the "Kline Studio Barn" on Mechanic Street.
My roomies, Scott and Stephen hale from Columbia, Maryland. Scott, also a painter, and I, had some great painting adventures and lively discussions throughout the weeks. Stephen, Scott's husband, actor/comedian, kept it real for us by making sure we ate well, we did our laundry, and occasionally talked about subjects other than Hensche or Hawthorne, or color, or the best way to tidy up our pallets after a day's work.
The entrance to the "Barn". It started out as a boat building shop, that is why the door is so wide.
Then Kline used it as a studio, then it became a gallery, and finally a little rental with two bedrooms and a lovely living area.
So, with the unreliable WiFi to deal with, I didn't keep a daily log of my thoughts and activities while I was away. I intend to tell my stories here as I think about what I have learned!!
I love this boat. I wish I had painted it.
