Bait

Painted this week in Portland in the Old Port, just beyond J’s Oyster Bar.  I’m always drawn to this particular spot, a remnant of working waterfront in a beautiful growing city.  I was looking for a human element, something to bring this painting to life, and just then a guy came out and threw bait in the water.  The birds came off the rooftops… chasing after the bait.
