John's, P-Town

I wanted to take a workshop a couple of summers ago with Charles Sovek whose paintings I admire but unfortunately, I was on a lengthy waiting list and did not get into this popular class. I booked a room anyway in the event that a place in the workshop opened up (or I could find out where they were and I could kind of paint nearby) but because it didn't, I painted anyway, and in this case, John's, a restaurant on the pier (wharf?) was the subject. I was sorry to learn that Mr. Sovek passed away recently, but he leaves behind a legacy of beautiful paintings. I purchased his book, "Catching Light in Your Paintings" which is a nice way to view his work and read about his thoughts on technique.

I love this painting, it was such a beautiful weekend, and you just captured the scene so well :) I can't wait to go back!

I have this little reproduction which I bought at OS when you were across from me. I love it!
