"Fishin' on the 4th"

"Fishin' on the 4th"
8"x10" oil on gessobord

I started this one a couple of weeks ago when I got to the Yarmouth town landing early and found the Adam and Joshua at the dock. Some liberties were taken with her location in this scene, and I did have to finish it with the aid of a photo, since this Sunday she had already gone out by the time I arrived to finish it. Next time I'll put the name on. This is my first free hand lobster boat (those done earlier this year were carefully gridded out from a photo). My goal at the Colin Page class was to get to this, so I am happy.

This painting will be available framed from the Yarmouth Frameshop and Gallery in September for $325.


  1. Wow. Really nice. I especially like the reflections and the draping of the flag. Congrats on successful free handing.
