Mexican Fishing Boat
Giclee on canvas, image size: 9 x 12
limited edition of 300
|Puerto Nuevo is about 20 miles south
of Tijuana, Mexico on the Baja California Peninsula. It's
a small fishing town known for their restaurants that
serve up great lobster and seafood. The fisherman of
Puerto Nuevo have no natural harbor but only open beach
to the Pacific Ocean. They push their boats on and off
the beach and row through the surf to get to deeper
waters where they can use their outboard engines.
While in Baja, I made my traditional stop for a great lobster lunch and then walked down to the beach hoping to find something to paint. I set up my easel and began to paint one of the boats on the beach among a furry of seagulls and on looking fisherman watching me paint. Occasionally I would stop to help pull one of the boats on or off the beach. A little sunburn and this handsome painting was my catch for the day.
The original painting in not available. After many requests for prints of this painting I have published it as a limited edition of 300.
