My first “unfinished” towing. “Michipicoten” operating on Great Lakes ore ship, built 1905 as Henry C. Frick, 7.600 gross tons (5.510 net tons), 569 feet (173.43 meters) once the largest in region. Owner of ship Providence Shipping sold her for scrap to Spain late in 1972.S.S. “Michipicoten” passed down through Welland Canal on October 27, 1972 with salt from Goderich, Ontario, Canada for Trois Riveres Quebec Canada on last trip, under own steam.We arrived to pick the ship from Quebec City November 13, 1972. One day of preparations and on November 15, towing started with help of local tugboats to wider waters of St. Lawrence River. After 24 hours weather start toworsen fast and on November 17 major fall storm developed. Around noon big puff of dust raised from “Michipicoten” and ship broke in two. Bow sunk in about half an hour the stern part keep us busy for another 8 hours sending warning to ships traffic on Gulf of St. Lawrence. Everything happen close to Anticosti Island. Next day weather calmed and beautiful day started on smooth surface of the Gulf. Our stern was clear, life goes on.

You would have to absorb many years of careful observation before it would be possible to make a painting like this. It is a privilege to be able to see it.

Hello Bill, if i may to place my “5 cents” that i look on your “ What the Flyingfish saw” published in SN and i will say that you have something in your artwork, a pleasant filling about and you have an artistic spirit 100% so my suggestion is keep brushes busy and keep dreaming. I am hard core realist but this is only one of million ways to represent art. I like a lot your text to it, a great package.

Awesome. You have a wonderful grasp on showing how the sea looks, even though it is in constant change.
Thank you for sharing this with us.
