"The Light"

18" x 24" oil over egg tempera on panel


This is the scupper on the side of an old rusty scalloping boat called the "Dinah Jane", based out of New Bedford MA.

I had the pleasure of meeting the crew back in 2012, as they were docked across the wharf from my boat.

They were interesting & generous (especially YaYa) - sharing fresh fish & sea scallops with us.

I added the herring gull, because we have a certain one that hangs out with us near our boat every summer. He's our dog substitute.
