Motif #1 - Rockport, Massachusetts
frozen in time
During our winter recess, Chicago-daughter was feeling the need for a seaside visit
as well as a fresh lobster roll.
A visit to nearby Cape Ann fit the bill.
This little red fishing shack, built in the 1840s, was dubbed "Motif #1" by an artist and painting instructor because of its immense popularity among art students. Painted innumerable times by various artists,
Motif #1 is thought to be North America's most painted building.
Little changed since the 1840's, this charming shack seems to be frozen in time.
The many paintings of this site that hang on walls all over the world
Thanks for dropping in!
