On Monhegan, there’s a guy named Rusty who will ferry you across the harbor to Manana. He also has this dory set up in his front yard where he sells braided ropes. Walking by this set up each day I thought it would make a fun painting. There was a lot of information here, so I had to edit a bit to get this painting. It was also a challenge to paint the dappled light falling across the boat, but I like the way it came out in the end.
