Reflected Red Fishing Boat Art by Poucher

"Reflected Boat"
Soft pastel on Colourfix paper 8x16"

A Provincetown fishing boat is reflected in the calm water in Provincetown harbor on Cape Cod. This series of 8x16" pastel paintings is for my June show at Julie Heller East in Provincetown. The show coincides with Provincetown's Portuguese Festival and Blessing of the Fleet so I have included many of the town's working fishing boats in this exhibit.

I love the glow of the red in this, its gorgeous. Good luck with the show in June, I know you'll do well. I have my own boat show in June here as well.

Interesting your mention of the Portugese festival and blessing of the fleet. Newfoundland has always had strong ties with the Portugese and fishing. I imagine the ties are similar there.

Thanks, Jeanette for taking the time to post your kind comments. Good luck for your show too! You know I enjoy your fantastic work, also.

The Portuguese population has diminished with the shrinking of the fishing industry in Provincetown but we do still have a Portuguese bakery and in the back streets and on the wharf you still hear Portuguese spoken.
