Artist's Description

These are among the nicest people I’ve ever met. Our ship made a landing at what we thought was an abandoned fishing village on the Siberian coast. We found a family living there. These two adults and their teenage daughters. The first thing she wanted to do was put water on the fire to make tea for all of us. I don’t think I could be that gracious if one hundred foreign strangers suddenly showed up on my doorstep.
When we left, we asked if there was anything they needed. She just asked for a little salt. We left all we could spare, and school supplies for their daughters.
