#15 SouthCoast New England City

Beach at Fort Tabor Park

Please reply to this email if you want this.
Can you guess? Just out of sight are the famous enormous hurricane doors, keeping the rising waters of Hurricane Anygirl out of refurbished granite storefronts of New Bedford. Standing atop some old fort ruins, I painted this view near painting pals of the Westport Art Group Thursday Painters. The chill wind made me turn away from the view of the lighthouse and Cuttyhunk away off in the haze and face the little park beach which seemed appealing in spite of the lack of lifeguards and beachy weather!

After lunch we moseyed over toward the Whaling Museum to see the brand new Black Whale Gift Shop where several Southcoast Artists' work will be on display. The Black Whale is adding to its Nautical Theme with a new restaurant in the "YELLOW BUILDING" near the Waterfront Grill. So much to explore in New Bedford! Improvements are promising! Young entrepreneurs' energy is finding its way all the way to Tiverton! Here's one of my paintings that will be on view there:

And Sunday, you might want to visit The Mill Pond Shop area of Tiverton Four Corners to see this delightful show at Kathrine Lovell Studio and Gallery! Please click on the link to check it out! I'm off to New Jersey wearing my Granny hat next week. But I'll be back before you have noticed!


  1. I hope those hurricane doors helped keep you warm...chilly out there. Love seeing your work.

  2. You captured the beach beautifully, I can feel October. I love New Bedford too and want to visit/paint? there soon.


Love to know what you think!
