Sarah Spencer Laid-up in Rouge River

Sarah Spencer Laid-up in Rouge River
 Oil on linen/panel, 2010, 7"x5"

to a collector in Ann Arbor, MI
Today's daily painting is a winter landscape of the freighter Sarah Spencer laid-up in the Rouge River. I was surprised to see a set of footprints where I shot this photo. I figured it was another Detroit photographer. When I looked up Sarah Spencer I found this video shot from the same location. Small World out there. This ship has been laid-up more than 2 years at this location. According to Great Lakes Ships, 30 lakers did not sail this last year.
