Coast Guard Cutter "Blackfin"
Original image size 16"X20"

The "Blackfin" is stationed out of Santa Barbara. She is shown here while tied to the Coast Guard Station docks in Morro Bay. Behind Blackfin is the famed Morro Rock shrouded in fog that almost went down to the suface of the sea. I have always loved fog and foggy ocean images. The day I visited Morro Bay was a perfect summer day but as you approached the harbor the fog had rolled in and sat keeping the hot summer sun at bay. Depicting the fog well was a challenge for me that I felt compelled to create in an art piece. In viewing this work now finished I feel I had accomplished my goal.
The original was created in all stippling on Bainbridge 4000 Illustration Board.
