The first week of August, I went on a painting vacation with my dog, Bandit. It was in North Truro, MA (Cape Cod). It was absolutely fabulous, I am definitely doing this again. The whole week is about plein air painting and no one to bother me or worry about if they are having a good time.

In this photo, I am working on touching up some of the painting, "View of Provincetown From Truro". It was very windy up on the bluff where I was painting and at one point the whole painting flew off the easel into the sand. So, there is real Cape Cod sand in that painting.

Yes, the Cape is fabulous! I am returning there in a few weeks. Yes, Jason, that posture is not comfortable but Thank God that is not where I was painting. When I was up on the bluff I usually stand at the easel. Then the wind knocks me down.

The Cape is a treasure trove of gorgeous scenery, compositions, colors and shifting light. I'm so glad you were able to spend some time there.

that doesn't look very comfortable.
