The Crosby Tarpon

This studio painting is of an old workboat, The Crosby Tarpon, who sadly is being laid to rest and sold for scrap metal.  I painted this boat from a photo taken of it docked at the scrapyard located in Morgan City, Louisiana.

These massive boats always intrigue me.  I often wonder what their stories would tell about where they have been, what they have seen and the stories of the workers who have traveled on them.  It makes me sad to see one go, but I guess everything has an end sometime...out with the old and in with the new.
