Dry Dock at Night
14 x 20 in
The subject of this painting is the Phyllis A – the oldest surviving fishing vessel in Gloucester. It is owned by the Phyllis A Marine Association, which has preserved the boat as part of the rich commercial fishing history of Gloucester and Cape Ann. The boat is very old and, as part of it renovation and restoration, is in drydock quite often – I’ve encountered it there several times on separate visits.
