A painter’s favourite – Motif #1

I was given a local map with walking tours and history of the town of Rockport – which led me to harbour to come see Motif #1, a fishing shack on Bradley Wharf.

This small fishing town became a focus for several artists, and it was artist Lester Hornby who named the building Motif #1. Although battered, bruised and destroyed, it was rebuilt by the town, and is regularly painted its iconic shade of red.
