Last Boat In Acrylic on Panel 16”x20” by John Seerey-Lester

In this painting Seerey-Lester has
taken us back to the glorious days
of the old Useppa Inn when it stood
in all it’s splendor at the north east
end of the Island. It’s the end of the
day and the tarpon fishing boats
are returning to the dock. The artist
imagines a couple, the lady dressed
more for sightseeing than fishing,
disembarking from the last boat in.
A tarpon hangs in the background.
