Open Carry on Cape Cod...

Have Brush, Will Travel…

On my last trip to the US, Painting Safari 2016, I decided to Open Carry (my brushes). Now I know that Massachusetts is not a traditional Open Carry state. It is not a crime for license holders, but they have sometimes been known to have their permits revoked. Things […]

LA MADELEINE©2016 Felice PanagrossoOil on Panel24 x 16 centimeters
