Line Fishing

Line Fishing
22 x 28 x 1.5  oil on canvas

Dried salted cod was the staple for food and almost currency in Newfoundland for hundreds of years and still can be found drying on flakes and lines in late summer.

The colours that can be found in what initially looks like a bland cream coloured kite shape is amazing when really studied.

Thank you Rhonda. The colours found in drying fish is amazing. And knowing that the tradition is still alive, even if on a much smaller scale, is a good thing.
