Fernandina Beach, Amelia Island, Florida

Artist Buried Here:  Here's a complete tableau: a portrait of the painter with palette and easel, plus the subject she is painting: her husband's trawler. He is not on board, though; he is buried at sea. She outlived him by 36 years but never got over her Skipper's loss. Even as an elderly matron, she memorializes his life at sea and his death so long ago. Bosque Bello Cemetery. [2009]
