In 1945, Charlie Couper and I drove to Provincetown to study with Henry Hensche,
a pupil of Charles Hawthorne. In those days, there was no highway, so, after
five hours of driving, we arrived in the Truro hills and saw for the first
time the profile of Provincetown. I said to Charlie: "That's where I'm
going to live my life." I was seventeen. After so many years, I am beginning
to understand the subtle curves and characteristics of this unusual landscape,
and I still find it challenging and rewarding. My work is Provincetown to
me. I hope and pray that we will always retain the mix that a working town
offers a creative person.
