"The Curlew", a local fishing
boat is shown returning to Eastern Passage, Nova Scotia after a day on
the North Atlantic.
To the left is a small pleasure boat, an sign of the increasing commercialization of a working fishing village. The area depicted in this painting is now the site of the large government wharf.
This painting is known locally as "The Hillbillies"; a tribute to the Curlew's colourful owners.
