Dennis Orme Shaw, GALWAY HOOKERS, 1960s

Gallway hookers.jpg

The largest hookers, Bád Mór, were 35- 40 feet, open and used to carry turf (for fuel) and maybe the occasional keg of poitín (the local hootch) across Galway Bay from Connemara and County Mayo to the Aran Islands and the Burren.  Hulls preserved with tar (black) and the canvas sails dipped in a heated solution of red bark and tallow ('barking"), giving them their distinctive dark red color.

Have star, will steer by
A lovely composition.  But it is remarkable, for it is unusual in paintings for the subject(s) to give the artist the stink eye.  Photographs yes, but in paintings, rare.   

So imagine the poor artist, perched on the wildly tossing bow with his pallet and lap easel trying to capture the moment.

"...Johannes, tuijottakaa vain horisonttia kuin odottaisit seuraavaa pontikka-kannua; Kaarina, siskosi on minulle vain mallimalli hetken kuluttua ennen kuin hän tapasi Olavin. Se oli puhtaasti platoninen. Pidä nyt noita kasvojani ja jätä keinuva vene huomiotta..."

"...Johannes, just keep staring off at the horizon like you're waiting for your next pull off the pontikka jug; Kaarina,  your sister only model for me for a little while before she took up with Olavi.  It was purely platonic.  Now please hold that face for me and ignore the rocking boat..."

Perhaps she suffers from "resting bitch face"?  :D

One of 2 that I got from an estate around 30 years ago. Butterfly wings as the background. I gave the other one to John P., the property manager for Fred Trump, Donald’s Dad. He hated Don so much back then because he worked so hard for Fred and Don just graduated from Wharton and got $10,000,000. John probably has more than Don now.
