This is an example of a touchstone familiar to all of us humans. The texture and soft colour is a comforting reference much as the rust and flaking paint in Mick's images is also so familiar to us. First the artist must see this value before we can then all enjoy it. TG
There will be a lot of hammer tapping in cotton corking for all those seams. Then she has to swell before becoming water tight. THE ritual. Then comes the toxic anti-fouling bottom paint. Makes a pleasing marine image though. TG
Years ago in Kenora Ontario you could see machinery installed by millwrights at the Ontario Pulp and paper plant. There was a huge drum with spikes all around the inside and it turned with a load of logs inside. The load was dumped onto chain conveyors when the bark had been removed. The bumping and pounding seemed crude yet the whole thing worked very well. This is a fine reminder of the quality equipment of those days. TG
