"George Allen" by Carol Thompson

George Allen

"The George Allen is listed as being at her home port of Astoria, Oregon, according to the Fisherman's Marketing Association Vessel List in November 2009.  She is a commercial crab fishing boat.

Artist comment:  "My research on the George Allen is dated November 2009.  According to the internet they fish for hake, a type of cod (I Googled 'fishing boat george allen astoria or).  I found out about the process they use to net tons of fish, how they store and preserve them, and what it takes to be a commercial fisherman.  My personal attachement to the 'George Allen' is it's sleek lines and beautiful blue color.  When I saw her at the Astoria bridge, I knew I had to paint her.  I chose pastel on Canson Mi-Teintes ivory toned paper.  Starting with sky and river, I rendered a blended sky and reflective water.  Then I painted the bridge, ending with the boat.  I painted the largest areas of color, rendered the lines and spars, finally drawing the rust and the green of the drag net.”
