|"Spring" is depicted in this painting by Charles W. Hawthorne,|
progenitor of Provincetown's art movement back in 1899.
I dug a bit, too, and even found a Hawthorne on a Chinese web page. Altogether, I found more than a hundred of his works that were new to me, including the striking woman above, gathering flowers. Hawthorne named this painting "Spring."
I've decided I'm going to begin bringing more art into these pages, and Hawthorne's works will definitely figure prominently, as they should. I hope you'll enjoy it.
In the meantime, since we sometimes really don't have much of a spring season in Provincetown, (just instant summer after a protracted cold, rainy spell,) I'm going to enjoy the painting above when I need a bit of spring.
