Since I was a one-year-old, I have spent each summer in East Orleans Cape Cod. These experiences have shaped who I am and have been a major part of my life. I wanted to incorporate the memories I have shared with my family in one simple painting. I chose my favorite ocean view found in my grandmotherís back yard. My painting allows me to save these special memories and keep them with me for the next chapter of my life. For my companion project I created a collage of Cape Cod memories where I collected pictures, wrote poems and painted small landscapes.
