JOURNEY TO THE DUNES

FIRST TIME staying in the Cape Cod dunes since 2014, first time in Thalassa, the smallest (9’x12’) shack closest to the sea.

We arrived on a Saturday morning and stayed through Friday, when we were picked up a day early due to the threat of a storm.

The paintings are presented in the order in which they were painted.

  1. Your life and heart must be overflowing with joy to produce this series. The colors, textures and patterns take me to many places in the world. I am especially drawn to the paintings of the shack interiors and exteriors, a piece of fruit, a basketful of color. Just so alive and gorgeous. You had a magical and productive week in our beloved dunes.CONGRATULATIONS Russ!

    1. Thank you for the kind words. It was an amazing week, dramatic yet restful, with lots of time to paint. I would love to be back there.

    1. Thank you, Judy. The dunes are not for everybody, but for me they have proved to be an inspirational and prolific place. Glad to get your feedback!
