My Father, by Ron Gilson

Our Dad!

By Ron Gilson;

“Paul Frontiero, Sr.,

fisherman, marine artist, WWII Navy combat veteran, family man and Gloucester icon, was my friend and roll model for over 50 years. Paul was a kind, beautiful person. At our every meeting, Paul never failed to mention his association with U.S. Marines during his WW II navy wartime service. I have so many pleasant memories, especially his art demos for me only in his basement studio, all the time reminiscing about our 1940-1950 waterfront, recalling the great vessels of those historical decades. Paul sketched and painted the waterfront scene as he studied and lived it, with vivid reality. Fortunately, his work hangs in many Cape Ann homes – his work lives on! Whenever passing his home and gallery, I always glance over from the Rt. 128 extension at his curtained picture window that for years displayed his signature surf scenes. Another era has passed. A Gloucester ambassador, remembered for his creative artistic genius, Paul Frontiero, Sr., lives on.

THANK YOU SO MUCH RON! That is a Beautiful tribute to a great man and father.

  1. Such a nice tribute to your father. He was a great artist – I once visited his home studio with my cousin. His war paintings tell an important historical event – I hope we can see them at the Cape Ann Museum soon, if some aren’t there already.
