Painting On The Cape
Sculpture - Wood Sculpture
This historically accurate work documents early 20th century New England in a cape setting. New England's heritage has always been about work, even in leisure as depicted in the wood carving of the artist at his easel. The time period is 1904.
A one of a kind piece, it took three months to produce in pine and borders along the lineage of folkart. However, finely crafted, the period has been painstakingly researched to bring about this scene with articulate detail from the lobsters in the traps to the paint accessories on the artist table -all produced in wood.
This work is destined to become an acquisition for a museum or discerning collector appreciating authentic maritime.
