My brother-in-law Michael J. Reber is an outstanding photographer and loves the Chesapeake Bay. He and his wife Mary Jane want the great resource that is the Bay and that we have damaged fully restored. I did an abstract painting for them of a skipjack oyster dredging sailboat (Sailing in Close). I had researched skipjacks so when I was inspired by a photo of his of skipjack Kathryn taken some years ago when she was working off Annapolis my painting of that name was easier. (The Kathryn is a National Historic Landmark and is being restored). The skipjack is the state boat of Maryland. There are only a half dozen or so left. They dredge for oysters and are allowed a push boat at the stern to sometimes push them around as they work.
