Shrimper from the Gulf Coast

I took a chance to do something different yesterday ---    a shrimp boat from the Gulf Coast.

It was a way to figure out how to play with light, distortion, shadow, reflection, atmosphere.


I think I will redo this as a larger painting--- but abstract the nets more so there imagery isn't so noticable.

It was fun... tricky, and full of promise!
