I worked on painting the sky and the main boat in the foreground.
We took this picture when our family went up to spend a short vacation on Cape Ann in Annisquam, Massachusetts with a dear friend. We went to nearby Essex, MA and visited the Essex Shipbuilding Museum. It was fascinating. You would never believe the number of ocean going sailing ships and fishing vessels built and launched in this small community and small river. They must have launched the boats only at high tide. The museum may repair the boat in the foreground, but it looked to us like it was never going to move again. But it did make a good subject for a painting with the boat stranded and abandoned in the marsh. The buildings on the right are part of the museum.
