Provincetown and the Outer Cape have a long history of painting. The artist’s colony there is over 100 years old, and perhaps the oldest in the U.S.
As with such places, there are certain subjects or motifs that are painted many times over the years by many artists. There is also a great deal of similarity in how they are composed and painted.
This series is based on the Day’s Cottages in North Truro. I have used a search engine to look for “Day’s Cottages Paintings” on the Web and reinterpreted those paintings by hyper-pixelating the images. All began as paintings, though I have adjusted color at times.
