p-town art :)

yesterday, we drove up to provincetown and dropped off my 3 images for an art show i am in 10/31-11/7.  

it is a thrill to be included in the provincetown art world - a town that, since childhood, felt like the place where artists go to "art".  i am longing to call my mother and tell her. instead, i have to trust that she knows. 

my mother was a fabulous painter and i remember p-town as an artist mecca.  she seemed like a different, more complete, person when we went there.  i remember the artists along the main street in town and remember imagining her sitting in those booths, painting.  
the booths are gone but the galleries and the artists in town remain. 
and the connection to her spirit - the wilder side of her - also remains :)

i am proud to be included in this small way, in this artist community.  :)
and i know she is proud as well.  
i love you, miss you, mom, more than words can say . . .


  1. I am so glad that you are able to participate in art shows in the same area that brought your mom so much joy…..I bet she's looking down on you and whispering how very proud she is of you…..Wonderful shots of the town….

    1. brought tears to my eyes, thank you nancy :)

  2. A part of her continues through you - such a blessed reminder that even after we go, the best carries on. Beautiful images of what is undoubtedly a powerful spot for you.

  3. i love this post...and the beat goes on...
