Fishing Boats, oil by RK Schlueter

Click to bid
Original oil on 9"x12" panel "Fishing Boasts" was completed my first day out with our plein air painting group in La Penita, Mexico 2011. This beach scene was just down the road from where we stayed. My husband, Stock enjoyed watching the fishermen launch their boats early in the morning, he was the only other person on the beach so early, he was painting and often lent a hand, he soon became acquainted with many of the fishermen, there was mutual respect between them, for hard work, long hours and commitment to an art form that fed the body and soul. Thank you for visiting.
