Bruce Wood: Getting Ready, Cape Cod Oil Painting(191 views)
GETTING READY is the title of this highly textured acrylic painting by Massachusetts artist Bruce Wood (b.1951). The painting is a view of young boaters getting ready to launch dinghies on the sandy Cape Cod shore.
Bruce Wood's work is inspired by the 19th Century American Impressionists. However, the scene is invigorated by his training as a contemporary artist.
The 20" x 24" image is on stretched canvas. It is framed in a traditional plein air styled gold-metal leafed wooden frame measuring 27"x31".
Bruce Wood is a painter of New England marine and countryside scenes. As a teen, Wood learned plain air landscape painting in Gloucester, Massachusetts, where he studied with Emile Gruppe and a variety of Cape Ann marine painters. He went on to formal art training at Massachusetts College of Art (BFA), and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (MFA).
Currently he is the oil painting conservator and director of the Woodshed Gallery in Franklin, Massachusetts, and an active member of the Lyme Art Association, Cape Cod Art Association, Wellesley Society of Artists and several other New England art associations.
Bruce Wood's prints and paintings are in the collections of the Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris, the University of Alabama, and the Rockford Art Museum in Illinois.
