Right around the New Year, my family took a trip to Sea Isle. On a rainy, cold afternoon, we decided to visit Cape May, New Jersey, to check out the Christmas lights. Liked the composition of the docked fishing boats next to a famous seafood restaurant, The Lobster House (one of my favorites), in Cape May. Have done a few early evening paintings at the shore (see Sea Isle Sunset, Sea Isle Promenade, and Beachcombers) – like the contrasts of the bright lights against the subtle value changes of the deep blues. Like using minimal detail – your mind fills in the details.
