Old Fishtown

Gary Odmark's avatar Gary Odmark

I am working on a historic painting of "Old Fishtown at twilight" in Leland, Mich. This is a 3'x5' oil painting. which as you see, is underway. The painting will be quite realistic with a great amount of detail. The painting will show Fishtown at the turn of the century, around the 1900s. It will have several of the old trap boats and one or two of the famed Mackinaw sailing boats (used for fishing) with the sails raised for drying. . Also there will be some of the old, hardworking fishermen at the old docks winding up their long day The painting will depict that romantic moment at twilight. I am excited to be showing a big piece of Michigan's history, which is preserved even to this day. Everyone should experience the feeling of going back in time, by visiting "Fishtown" in Leland, Mich.
