"De Haas, well familiar with the sailing environs of greater New York, and well beyond the waters of the sound. Deep ocean currents cut through the North Atlantic, and de Haas shows he has given them notice, for his water portrays some of the chaotic action of the swells near the coastlines."

It is a nice painting to zero in on, Bill.

Nev, if you were fishing, you wouldn't give a hoot about the ships either, unless of course your nets were in danger.

Pat, I think you have it pegged. The market is probably riding on a huge base that we can't see floating in the water.

Thanks, all, for your visit.

That's a lot of boat and ship activity. (Well, it is New York, Pat.) The pole sticking up out of the water on our left, is that an early channel marker???

I like the two fishermen in the right foreground - they couldn't care less what all those vessels are doing behind them: it's all about the number of fish in their nets which they are pulling in.
Thanks, Gayle.

Yeah, I guess the water does look pretty chaotic. But De Haas has captured a lot of fine detail in this painting, too. Thanks, Gayle.
