Piece description from the artist
I drew sketches for this painting standing on a drawbridge over a coastal waterway in New Jersey. The fishermen had their houses along the water, and the vacationers and boaters were enjoying close quarters with the canal. I try to bring the calm of the water together with the coastal atmosphere, which can get very active.
