This bucket is a reproduction of the buckets that fishermen in Nova Scotia used as their fish pails in the early 1900's. Eventually, these buckets became useful in other ways - such as for carrying potatoes from the garden to the house, or to the root cellar.
I found this bucket one day as I was browsing in the shops in Bragg Creek, a small village just outside of Calgary, Alberta. Being a Maritimer myself, it was a found treasure that brought to memory the smells and sounds of living next to the ocean! This painting is part of a collection that belongs to friends who are also from the Maritimes.
