"Red Buoy at Ebbtide"

18" x 22" - Oil on Canvas

Buoys are used in Maine for lobster fishing and each buoy is attached to a lobster trap that is resting on the bottom. Each lobsterman chooses his own color combination, as hauling someone else’s trap is strictly forbidden. This red buoy is hand made from wood. In today’s technology they are factory made in plastic coated foam. Here in Maine, beachcombersbelieve a striped rock will bring you good luck. Due to a variety of geological activities many of the rocks (some very large) can be found holding back the power of the sea in Maine.
