The Mary Whalen


I had a great opportunity yesterday. I was invited by Carolina Salguero who had come across some of my Red Hook sketches, to draw her ship the MARY WHALEN. The ship is a retired oil tanker docked in the Red Hook container port, north side of pier 9B. I could draw her for months on end and never be done. I certainly mean to go back while the weather hold out. I managed two drawings yesterday so you will see the other tomorrow. Thanks again to Carolina.
