Capt Joey's "Pogie"


My friend Joey Ciaramitaro of Capt Joe's and goodmorninggloucester allows me to use his photos as reference for my fish paintings.  I'm starting a new series of glass paintings, and will try to have them complete within the next two months, so that some can be shown next year.  This Pogie, which is used for bait is kind of sad, yet i can see through the rot and have a 'sense' of the fish's individual character.  the eyes tell me everything i need to know.


ps:  if you click the photo, Capt Joe's "Not so Beautiful Industry" page on flickr will appear.

This is a great photo, indeed full of fishy emotion and great rotting colors. I'll follow your work as always...
