This Feature Painting is CAPE ANN , MASSACHUSETTS by Bruce Repei. I painted this work in 2012 in acrylics on canvas. It is a large painting measuring 30″ X 60″ X 2″. It is unframed, “gallery style”.
My aim in this work was to evoke the qualities of life in this part of the New England coast, ie the ever present sea and sky as backdrop, the style of architecture, skilful use of materials and colours and the history that is everywhere. Integrity of good workmanship and design is appreciated here.
This painting will place you down in Cape Ann where you see the years of weathering on the cedar shakes and shingles, faded to a silvery tone in the summer sun. With the blue sky above, you look into the window panes and see reflected, the panorama of the Atlantic Ocean behind you.
