Dory Lobster Fishing print

My feature in my Etsy shop this week is a print of my painting "Dory Lobster Fishing", an 11" x 14" print framed in a mahogany frame with white liner.  This seems fitting in the fall as we come up to lobster season, which has actually started further up the Bay of Fundy. 

But we won't find many people this lobster season fishing the wooden traps from a dory propelled by oars!

The dory is painted its traditional "dory buff" colour, which is reflected in the waves near the bow.

And the lobster buoy is painted the same colour, with distinctive black marking on it.

The fisherman is manoeuvering with his oars, pulling on one and pushing on the other to turn his dory.

This might be a romantic look at lobster fishing, but it would be a hard way to make a living!
