There’s a strip of Bay-side beach on Cape Cod that has been a special part of my life since I was a kid. Extending West to East from Chapin to Cold Storage, this sand-bar expanse of beaches are interspersed along their shores with dunes that have, over the years, shifted and reshaped themselves according to the will of tides and wind. In some of these dunes (for better or worse), homes have been built, some many years ago, others more recently. This piece, “Dune Light” (48 x 30) is of one such home, looming over the beach we most often go to in summer. I’ve looked up at this scene many times, deciding this summer to finally paint it.
