The Herring Net

Painting by Winslow Homer – The Herring Net

This old canvas board print came through the Habitat Restore where I volunteer two afternoons a week. It was in pretty shabby shape, worn and in need of cleaning. I found that it was a painting by Winslow Homer. It was about ready to be thrown out, so I said I would take it home and see if I could restore it. I went back over the painting with the original colors and brightened it up. I am very happy with the results.

  1. Oh, Dwight! You did a marvelous job! What a beautiful painting! And your poem honors it’s restoration! I know you put yourself into it…it is now a part of you and you are a part of it. πŸ™‚

    Like that painting, we Human-Beans are battered by life, wondering our worth.
    And it’s people like you who help us be restored emotionally. πŸ™‚ Thank you!
    HUGS!!! πŸ™‚
