Cornish traditional fishing boat painting

Acrylic on canvas, 16x12"

Our family loves visiting Cornwall. Part of its charm are the small traditional fishing villages. When we were there in October 2013 we were lucky enough to watch a fishing boat returning from a trip. It struck me that in years to come, this might become a rare sight, as overfishing by big industrial operations makes it difficult for traditional fishermen to survive. It felt important to appreciate it while we still have it, and painting things is my way of focussing on them and celebrating them.
