Artist's Description

My dad ran towboats all up and down the Mississippi River, and the Ohio, the Illinois, the Missouri….. He built his first boat shortly before I was born, and my childhood echoed with the never-ending litany of port cities: Chicago, Dubuque, Davenport, St. Louis, Cincinnati, Memphis, New Orleans.

This is a view of the Tennessee River at Decatur, Alabama, where I stopped one morning for an open-air breakfast. Dad had celebrated his 101st birthday a month before. He never got to see this picture; about a month later he was called to sail on the Great Adventure we all must take.

This one’s for you, Dad.
