Update:

This work was selected to be part of The Provincetown Art Association and Museum’s (PAAM) Members’ Juried: PAAM100 show. I’m honored to be part of a special show with many brilliant artists. Visit the museum Dec. 5 – Jan 18th to view all works. I’m also happy to say it sold. Thank you, buyer.

I tend to like to work on two or more series at the same time. It’s a product of many ideas I want to flesh out or touch upon as well as not wanting to get stale on a subject matter or theme. Since I haven’t posted any of my ongoing Anonymous/Self Portait series it would appear all I’m doing is Provincetown lots. Not so. Like other lot locations this piece features a featureless setting but the truck represents the authentic P’town to me. Yes, there are not shortage of Range Rovers and Mercedes in driveways but this truck says a lot about who might own it. It’s as hardened as a “local” with its rugged charm, unapologetic display, and a few dings here and there… much like the many that work any service in a coastal town with many part time, and at times demanding, residents and tourists. This one goes to those that work tirelessly day in and day out and, despite some extra millage, are still going strong even after the season is over.
