Paint it..Before its torn down

Always one of my favorite subjects is the Cohasset Yacht club. This historic harborside building was originally erected in 1896 and has been the home of the Cohasset Yacht club since inception.

In mid-August, I sold one of my older representations of the club, and was informed by the buyer/member that it 's due for demolition in mid September, '17. A real shame, but all the pilings have rotted out, and the building has been declared condemed for the past two years, and has not been occupied.

Good news, visiting their website (, Arichtectual renditions show the replacement building retains much of the floavor of this historic landmark.

Meanwhile, I promptly went out and did a number of new plein arie's of the site, for historic value and for many that loved the old building may have an original oil representation of this historic site.....ENJOY!
