Memory: Baltimore

by Susan Abbott

I rented a studio near this part of Fells Point harbor for a time, and though it seemed odd to some that I would commute 45 minutes north on a freeway from my nice suburban neighborhood in Washington to spend the day painting in a seedy section of Baltimore, it made perfect sense to me to work in walking distance of these hoists and tanks. I'll have to go back there again with my french easel this spring and see if there's any industrial landscape I love left
in my old neighborhood.
