My father spent a portion of his life as a commercial fisherman. I have memories of spending hours out on the boat with him during the summer. It is those memories that draw me to paint fishing boats from time to time. When painting this 11x14 inch oil painting, I had in mind the brilliant light of a sunny summer morning. Fresh air and sunshine feel so good.
