"At the Lobster Dock" pen & ink 6 x 9
This is the first design sketch for a painting I'm contemplating. We spent a week in South Bristol, ME at a friend's family cottage for a few Junes in a row, sharing the house with friends and their son, a year+ younger than our daughter. It was a great house, on its own cove. We would kayak, play games, clam, cook, hunt fireflies, read books, build caves from blankets and furniture.... such a great place. And, we would spend one of our days in Boothbay Harbor, parking across the Harbor, lunching at the Lobster Dock, then walking across on the footbridge. I have always loved the photograph of our daughter I used as inspiration for this drawing. I'm going to work this into a painting. Details to follow.
