He was fortunate to move to Rockport, Massachusetts after college. David felt a strong connection with Cape Ann right from the start and from then on has always wanted to live near the water. He benefited greatly in those early years of painting by being part of the art colony on Cape Ann. Most of the important American painters either spent time there or visited for a time, and he had unlimited opportunity to learn from many of the wonderful artists who have lived and worked on Cape Ann. David received instruction and encouragement from many of the nationally recognized artists who frequent Cape Ann.
David's love of the sea as subject matter comes from his Dad who loves to sail and taught his family to handle small boats. "Our summers were spent on Barnegat Bay, Lake Champlain and Long Island Sound". In David's mind's eye, the summer is one long day at the beach, and he still enjoys painting sailing scenes. Most recently, David traveled to the Isle of Wight, England for the America's Cup Jubilee where the original America's Cup race was reenacted. His latest paintings are the result of attending this event.SOLD. If you would like to inquire about the availability of other works by this artist, please contact the gallery.
