GOINGI realize that I am milking my vacation dry with post after post, but I really had such a great time and wanted to document and share all of my finds. Today I wanted to share my love of an artist I discovered last year on my trip to Wellfleet, Carol Aust.

I posted about Ms. Aust last year and then fell in love with her all over again on the recent trip when I saw some of her latest works on display at the Left Bank Gallery in Wellfleet.

In particular, I fell head over heels for her piece, Going Deeper, which is so simple yet evokes all sorts of things. The acrylic on wood painting features a young couple in the ocean looking out at the viewer. I can’t explain it, but I love it.

My friend Lynda also loves the work and is spot on when she said it would make a great wedding gift for the right couple. I think it would make a nice gift for me, but so far no one is biting on that one… marriage or otherwise.

“Going Deeper” by Carol Aust (original now on display for sale at the Left Bank Gallery in Wellfleet, MA.
