working man cripple cove

Originally uploaded by debclarke art
saw a great interview with Gloucester artist Paul Ciamiataro on goodmorninggloucester this morning. Paul pointed out that a lot of cape ann paintings focus on the boats, the buildings, the landscape and if there are any peeps in the paintings, they are very small. Paul's focus is on the people that provide the backbreaking labor to bring the sea's abundance to shore.

i just realized that all of my cove drawings are of the shapes of the landscape sans people, except this one where i caught someone getting something stowed in the storage bin of his truck at Capt Joe's.
