Minnows Anybody?

Minnows Anybody? 5 x 7

This was painted from a photo I took at Stony Brook Harbor on the North Shore of Long Island over Labor Day weekend, 2008. Typical of kids this age, this brother and sister were excited to be the owners of a big bucket of minnows. As young entrepreneurs, I think they were even more excited about the prospect of turning a tidy profit off their sale.

Wonderful brushwork and figures. I can feel the heaviness of the bucket. Very nice.
