Shack Window, Friendship, ME (Framed)
Oil on Panel
Framed with contemporary float frame, light wood
Limited time only
You walk down the rickety pier covered with traps and surrounded by boats and rough beauty. In the window you stop, taken by the wonderful collage of bits and pieces of the fisherman's world: peeling paint, a buoy unique to the family; weathered wood, used, useful, and trashy stuff; you can feel cold water, salt air, hope of a good catch, memories, despair, swelling seas, and hard work. Suddenly this is more beautiful than the sky and sea.
