I drew and painted the series, IN THE PAIL, in a boat. My friends were fishing for small blue fish. I had intended to use the lovely view of the bay as a subject for painting while the others fished. But as soon as the first-caught fish was dropped in the pail, my interest shifted. I drew them in ink and water color during their last moments of life. It was my way to dignify the fish and my connection with them. Ink and watercolor on paper 10" by 12".
