The Drake Paul at Home

This is a Louisiana painting, originally done left-handed, now painted over. It may be a tiny 4x6 painting, but you'd be embarrassed for me to know how many hours went into painting this.
The shrimp boats are very challenging as there are no straight 90 degree angles anywhere aboard. The green nets draped over the superstructure add a softness to all the lines. These boats just pulled up at the end of the day, right in front of their houses. We saw wives walking across the street with beers for their men to drink while they dealt with all the critters. One of our group bought several pounds of fresh shrimp from one of them and we took them back and cooked them up that night for supper! No starving artists in our group.
