I have lived by the water, on the Chesapeake bay, where we had a little dock going out to a little boat. Each morning, in our little lagoon, a crabber would slowly drive his boat around and around the lagoon, fishing for crab. On our finger into bay, everyone had a dock going out to their boats, some covered, just like this one. It was a wonderful life to live, waking up each morning, to the sound of the water lapping at the back yard; watching seabirds fishing for their breakfast, and seeing the crabber patiently dipping his net to snag crabs. This painting shows a little slice of that sort of life. The end of the day; the fishing boat moored at the end of the dock, its dingy trailing behind, and the fisherman's daughter happily walking to the homestead by the sea. I have also seen a set up much like this one, here, in south China, with an outside restaurant at the top of this exact sort of roughly covered dock. The painting measures a very large 150 cm by 150 cm and will be dismantled for shipping. Please call or email for further details and to arrange for acquisition of this wonderful work of art.
