I was initially struck by both the colors and the subject — the orange of the coveralls and blue of the gloves. I admire how Paul paints whites, as in a T-shirt. And the subject: there is no doubt as to the occupation, so much a part of our New England heritage and the Cape that I love so much. The composition tells a story. You can see the look of concentration on his face as they make their final approach. Paul has a talent for showing us beauty in the everyday: clothing on a clothesline blowing in a summer breeze, a young fisherman pulling into port. He makes us look at the ordinary in a new light and through his eyes and his talent, we are enlightened. — Janice Reece
