It’s cold and yucky out, but our Fire Island house rental begins in exactly 10 weeks, and I’m dreaming of the wonderful adventures this summer will bring. So when I saw the art of Bo Bartlett, I was instantly captivated. They remind me a bit of the work of Kenton Nelson, only more candid-looking, and a little less stylized.
I am really drawn to their retro feel and the fresh, simple way he portrays his subjects. His paintings look to me like summer feels, and I love that about them. Are we there yet?
