I was lucky enough to have an entire week in Friendship, Maine. I stayed in a house immediately adjacent to the town dock. From my vantage point on the large farmer's porch, I had enough material to paint for the entire week. I never took my supplies off the porch! If I turned around, with my back to the street, I saw the next dock, and it was one with a lot of activity. This was June and everyone was getting ready for the season. Lobster traps and ropes and buoy of different kinds were piled and made great patterns of color. It looked great. But one day a bait truck came to deliver the necessary product. It was there a while as the delivery was negotiated and accomplished. I loved this part where the two men came together, all their attention on something between them. The perfect moment to catch. This piece was primarily done on site and touched up in the studio.
