OSPREY AT THE OLD FISH FACTORY


I just finished this painting today. It's another one of the small 5.5" x 7.5" original watercolors I started at the Tuckerton Seaport Museum on Sunday. The area around the old "Stink House" is legendary for being a great fishing spot. In the old days, the factory used to grind up fish for fertilizer, hence the name. Still a favorite spot with anglers, here one can see a wide variety of shore birds and maybe even nesting eagles.
