After Hopper

 Mayo Beach, Wellfleet, MA

Mayo Beach, Wellfleet, MA

Addison Art Gallery is celebrating the artist Edward Hopper (1887-1967) and his legacy on Cape Cod. I am pleased to be an invited artist to create new work inspired by Hopper and the places he painted. In 1933 he painted the front of the Capron House which is known as the Mayo Beach Lightkeeper’s Cottage.
Instead, I chose the more relaxed back door view which overlooks the beach and bay of Wellfleet Harbor.
