The North Atlantic, a new painting – in six parts, each 10 x 14 inches – will be shown at Dowling Walsh Gallery in Rockland, opening May 1st. It is based upon a group of small books I found in the special collections branch of the Providence Public Library, which has the second largest inventory of whaling logbooks in the world.
