Artist Alicia J. Stonebreaker, Polish born and trained at the Academy of Fine Arts, Poznan and the Kassel Art Academy in Germany, painted this beautiful watercolor on Monhegan Island, Maine in 1970. Alicia captured this great seascape with her unique talent for drawing, use of perspective, and her watercolor skills. Observe the distant island with the many gulls floating in the sky. The sailboat cruises by as you look past the rugged Maine rocks she painted so brilliantly. The island started out as a British fishing camp prior to settlement of the Plymouth Colony. Cod was harvested from the rich fishing grounds off of Monhegan. The catch was then dried on fish flakes before shipment to Europe. This Fisherman Memorial goes out to all of the brave souls who went to sea to earn their living but never returned.
