Sean Boyce

Since we moved in together in the Back Bay, R and I have been exploring more and more together. Even though I’ve lived here all my life (our apartment is 5 blocks from my childhood home) and Ross has been here for a few years, it’s fun to get to go to familiar spots together. Since the weather has turned nice, one of those spots is Newbury Street where there are a few plein air painters including Sean Boyce.

Not only does Sean paint out and about in Boston, he paints Boston itself in what he calls an “arbitrary realism” style.

I love the way his pieces look – the bright colors and the sort of balanced, unbalance – when I look at them I feel a little wobbly and I like it. He also has several pieces up in local Bolocos, which I thought was the case and didn’t know for sure until I went to his website – pretty cool!

The above, Copley Square, is just around the corner from us. We were thinking that we would get one of his pieces for our apartment but they are too rich for our blood right now. Maybe someday!
