Brown up to here Pelican (SOLD)

I am posting this reference photo to show you how this piece of Wanchese Harbour used to look.About a foot above the water line welders have cut away the hull of the Bald Eagle. I took this picture about 2 months ago.  I heard that the wreck of the Bald Eagle has been removed. I like the gloves in the foreground. Screw you.

You got the Silver(SOLD)

A lot of people come to the outer banks on vacation.  Over the years a lot of people have rented the house behind "Old Miller's Pharmacy"or what is now "The Beachroad Grill" in Nag's Head, North Carolina. I have painted this house three times in the past. This is the forth time that this particular cottage has showed up in my paintings. A couple that had stayed in this house saw my painting in a gallery. They did not buy it at the time and it was sold before they got back to the gallery. That painting was "Sidewalks, Fences and Walls". Friends of the couple contacted me and asked if I would paint it again as a gift.

Capt. Ralph (SOLD)

I have been painting on this a lot. Wiping away rigging, moving stuff. It is always difficult learning a new subject, and all this apparatus with the nettings has a lot of shapes.

Sassy Sarah (SOLD)

No inference. Although, I have known it to be so.
I enjoyed painting this a lot, it came out as if I had been preparing my entire life to paint this. Wanchese Harbour is a great place to get shots of a working seafood park. It is my sincere hope that boats like "Sassy Sarah" will always have seafood to catch in the coastal waters along the Outer Banks of North Carolina. I pray the wetlands along the Gulf of Mexico can survive our best efforts.

One Trick Pony Crab (SOLD)

I painted another crab. This ain't no dog and pony show. As a sidebar, I used a photo of a bluecrab in the previous painting I did and stayed as faithful as I could to the photo, this one however, I just made up. I would not have guessed that the two would be quite so similar.
