Birds Over Wychmere
After all the cold plein air days I stayed inside this past week and painted a scene from memory. Wychmere is a very picturesque harbor in HarwichPort on Cape Cod. It is now a very private and privileged place to live. It wasn't always. When I was young this building was Thompson's Clam Bar and was an extremely popular place to dine. I remember eating there on the deck with all of the windows opened to the harbor. If you weren't quick, a gull would suddenly fly in make off with your fried clam or French fry. The Clam Bar is now gone. The building is a private eating place and site for weddings. So, the gulls are off to find a new dining spot.
