Default From Steamboat Paintings to Painting a Steamboat

I guess having Alan Bates as a steamboat mate way back years ago in my deckhand days wharped my romantic ideas about steamboating because I tend to look at boats from a workman's prospective. On our "Wake of the AMERICA" trip last month I gave out pictures of the three boats we were talking about that day...the AMERICA, TELEGRAPH, and CITY of MEMPHIS. In studying the picture of the AMERICA it struck me how hard it would be to paint that boat. Look at the picture, the boat is all sticks, poles, and lattuce work; about the only flat areas are the overheads on each deck. No wonder painting a steamboat is a never ending job.
