“Living in Boston, my family and I love to spend time at many of the beautiful beaches, salt marshes, islands, fields, and towns surrounding our home town. Plum Island, Rockport, Gloucester, Marblehead, and the Berkshires are among my favorite places where I (and probably many of you) have fond moments. Every painting I did is about trying to evoke this memory and emotion I had of the place rather than trying to capture every detail realistically. With oil, a palette knife, color and every brush stroke, I try to capture the way the sun and the wind hit my skin, the feeling of the surface I’m standing on.” -Agnes Jacob
