I felt the small seafood processing plant, along with the fishing boats in the foreground, really tells the story of this little area where generations of fishermen have earned their living fishing the Chesapeake Bay. It’s my understanding that this area is destined for some development in the near future. Fishermen will soon be pushed out by fancy condos or something of the sorts. I hope I’m able to paint here again before that happens. The proud white structure in the background had a sign that read “East Coast Seafood,” hence the title.
