I have long admired the fishermen of a Moroccan village called Essaouira. Many times I've painted there with my wife and my son. The life the fishermen lead is difficult and unpredictable, and yet they go about their tasks with steadiness. Here, at the end of their workday, they head to their families. The boats and nets are cared for a stowed away.
