Todays Painting: Aspotagen
Aspotagen, Nova Scotia, is a place with a native Micmaq name. Unquestionably, it has the most colourful fishing craft in all of this province. The masters of these craft have a strong preference for primary colours: red, blue and yellow in the highest chroma. This was early fall 2006 when the boats had been pulled from the water for the winter. The ramp on which the yellow boat rests is made up of peeked logs laid on the bare ground. This was a dull, cold day, so all that colour was doubly appreciated.
