In it's frame

I found this frame at Hobby Lobby. I had this kind of frame in mind when I went out to look, but I wasn't sure I could find one. But - I did.

Now all I have to do is find somewhere to hang it.

Ta Da!

It is, finally, as done as it's going to get. What you see below, with the initials in the lower right hand corner, is "Derelict in Harbor". Is it perfect? No. Am I done messing with it? Yes. I can't make it any better, so it's time to stop.

The subject of this painting still lies beached along the quay in Ballynakill Harbour near Letterfrack, Galway Co., Ireland. Her superstructure has collapsed toward the quay, so that from the angle of this picture, her deck structure is no longer visible. She also has company that didn't exist at the time this painting documents. There is a large tramp steamer on the other side of the quay - also permanently beached. At least she's not alone.
