GULLAH FISHERMAN 'CAPT DICK MIDDLETON'
The painting is of St Helena Island legend Caption Dick Middleton.
Shrimping, Fishing, and Crabbing on the Sea Islands was an intricate part of survival for the Gullah people, who excel in navigating the marshes and open waters.
The colors of the sea and sky have a quality of cool expansiveness and openness, the blues an introspective meant to convey the compassionate caring and deep spirituality. The main subject is one of wisdom and steady character.
A large canvas work, 30 x 48
