It’s all about nostalgia! The remaining ships of yesteryear known as “Salties” and “Lakers” are resting. They have been abandoned for a while, since the glorious days of ore carriers along the Great Lakes are mostly over. These are almost the ghosts of early freighters now rusting by the lakeshore of Lake Superior. I am less interested in making a narrative painting. Shapes of these huge boats are always intriguing and fascinating to me. The distant harbor with industrial areas is still busy with activities. My materials are mostly conventional: paint, paper, and brush. Directly painted on dry paper with transparent watercolor and mostly flat brushes on Indian handmade paper.
