Philip T Feeney - Gouache on Paper
Abandoned tug boat in Staten island. This ship wreck caught my attention immediately. I decided to get on board and check her out for myself. So sad yet so beautiful. Time, sea salt and years of wind and rain had taken its toll on the inside as well as the outside.
Painted over the course of 2 days, I wanted to capture the essence of age and rust. In this video I describe what it was like to walk inside the ship and imagine how people have lived and made a living on her. Check out the video link.
