$149. Once a month, the Seattle Plein Air artists’ meetup group gets together at Fisherman’s Terminal in Seattle. One day I found this gem of a subject and sat right down on the dock to make a picture of it. A fisherman couldn’t believe it: “Why d’ya want to paint Jack’s old dory when there are so many NICE boats around?!” My explanations were received with knitted brows until I finally said, “You know how artists are…” At that he nodded and continued on his way.
