This is the rustic shop-by-the-sea that I've been wanting to paint for a long time... finally it's done! I have collected so many cat/nautical ideas to be thrown in here but finally just used less than half as I run out of space to place them!

This is the Main Gallery... buyers are welcome to browse and shop to their hearts' delight!
I named this shop Capt. Kirby's and it has a website at www, but don't attempt to visit as it exists only in my painting!

They sell everything needed by the lobster catchers.
On SALE... brand new lobster traps for only $49.99 each! A great way to beat inflation.

Farther off are lobster boats... these are Capt.Kirby's best customers for new traps and buoys.

Here is Grandpa working on his ancient boat.

An eye-catching wood-carved watcher set high above the shop... a well-known landmark in this part of town.

Yes... we also sell boat paint! Any color can be mixed up in a jiffy.
The Master Wood-carver and family at work... creating more "Capt. Kirby" wooden figures, the shop's best seller.

Gray cat loves to lie down on cool cedars fresh off the lumber yard.

Everything in this big pile of nautical stuffs are on sale... except the cats!
Colorful handcrafted whirligigs and carvings beckon art lovers to come and buy.

True to Chinese proverb... colorful whirligigs in motion... bring in good feng shui to any garden.
A rare antique find... the sailor cat that eats a balance diet!

A close-up pic of the stuffs on sale... antique buoys, oars, decoy, and other goodies for the collectors.

More arts and crafts and seashells... fresh starfish are also available.

Capt. Kirby at the beach... one of the coolest summer decors for your beach house.

Enjoy and thanks for visiting my blog!
