Dockside Vigil
Dockside Vigil

Dockside Vigil was begun before pandemic closings at the 2020 American Society of Marine Artist's Conference (at Jamestown Museum in Virginia). While painting the period ship replica, I imagined a Drake era crewman as a security guard looking down at me. It was too cold and windy to finish on site, so photos were taken to support the figure I added later in the studio. (photo credit: H. Bird)
