Cast Net

6" x 4"

This is a study for a figure in a larger painting I'm working on.  The workboat was  heading out of a channel next to Selby Gardens in Sarasota.  The circular net is tossed over schools of little silver fish called white bait.  The cold snap in Florida has seriously damaged the fish population, a sad situation.  Many tarpon, snook, grouper, and lots of other sports fish have died.
