Dune Painting called “Seeking”, the original is available. This work is also available as a High Quality Giclee Print.
Kendrick was selected through the Provincetown Community Compact to create a body of work in one of the primitive Dune Shacks situated along the far-flung coastal region of Massachusetts. The Dune Shacks of Peaked Hill Bars Historic District have lodged famous artists and authors who have sought a place of seclusion in which to work.
Without the creature-comforts of electricity, indoor plumbing, cell phone or computer, Kendrick was challenged to adapt and engage with nature in solitude.
“This was both a marvelous and frightening experience,” said the plein air artist “I was able to explore, observe and emotionally connect with the landscape in its raw and finest moments.”
With plein air study’s done on location at the Dune Shack and the surrounding area, the works have been important reference material for study works such as “Seeking”.
Congratulations to this couple who got engaged with “Seeking” as a backdrop. Wonderful, Happy, Energy and many years of finding and seeking your best life with each other.

50x40x1.5 Oil on Canvas by Claire J Kendrick
Changing skies inspire this moody seascape painting. Symbolically the ocean is a sign of power and strength, due to its immensity. Observing and painting the great power of the ocean and its weather fronts is much like having a front row seat at the theater. As a plein air painter there is an urgency and need to capture the essence of your vista – it’s sparked by emotion and energy. Then the atmosphere and weather of the outdoors adds to the paintings aliveness. All this –- the vigor of life is to be conveyed onto a canvas. It is a love, and a challenge.Claire J KendrickSeascape SeriesMay 15, 20180 comments

DUNE SHACK SEASCAPE SERIES
Exhibiting at CCPV will be five paintings by Claire Kendrick they are plein air works, reflecting her dune life onto canvas and creating beautiful paintings which captivate the magnificence of the Cape.
In 2016 Claire Kendrick was awarded with an opportunity artists around the world dream of, a residency at the Peaked Hill Bars National Register Historic District. Claire Kendrick’s residency on Cape Cod, occurred completely off the grid providing the artist with only the bare necessities and her painting materials in an effort to preserve and enhance the natural beauty of the Cape and reflect such beauty in Kendrick’s works.
The artist resided in one of the well-known Dune Shacks. The shanty was located miles away from civilization, but it has lodged several famous artists and authors throughout time all in search of seclusion to work.
Artist Claire Kendrick has produced many breathtaking paintings seascapes and dunes throughout her career. Kendrick is a Florida based artist but this was not her first time capturing the North East’s coast. In 2011 Claire Kendrick accepted an invitation from fellow landscape artist Anne Packard to paint at her coastal home in Provincetown, MA.
“Staying at the Dune Shack was both marvelous and frightening, life was stripped of the superfluous—no cell phone or computer—the essentials, paint supplies, a gas ring to cook on and gas light to read with at night, alone for a week perched on the dunes with uninterrupted views and huge open vistas looking out to sea, this is escapism and a chance to observe and emotionally connect to nature in its raw and finest moments. This is the thrill of the plain air painter.” – Kendrick

Living on the east coast of the United States I look out on the Atlantic Ocean and I’m challenged as an artist to capture its vastness. The high seas and big storm fronts remind me of my native home, Ireland, the North West Outpost of Europe. Those memories combined with the ferociousness of the weather fronts brings a depth and passion to my work, yet the stillness and peace of the southern shores is a soothing calm and is both a joy and quest to capture as a plein air and studio painter.
Symbolically the ocean is a sign of power and strength, due to its immensity. Observing and painting the great power of the ocean and its weather fronts is much like having a front row seat at the theater. As a plein air painter there is an urgency and need to capture the essence of your vista – it’s sparked by emotion and energy. Then the atmosphere and weather of the outdoors adds to the paintings aliveness. All this –- the vigor of life is to be conveyed onto a canvas.
