|"Three Crabs Restaurant" 6x10 oil on panel|
I took an overnight trip back to the mouth of the Dungeness River, planning on camping again at the Three Crabs Restaurant. Some of you who are long time subscribers may remember my trip in 2010 when I was commissioned to do several paintings of Northwest rivers. When I arrived the cook informed me that the restaurant had been sold to the state and will become a park! I decided to paint the place for posterity ...I will sure miss the Three Crabs! Hopefully the state will manage the property well......but they will not be able to serve up delicious crab cakes!

An interested customer took a picture. I gave him my card and he graciously sent me this image. It was pretty hot out there that day!

I spent the night in the parking lot and got up early to start the day of painting ....This was the glorious view that greeted me!
