This is the much painted tugboat of Rockport around 8 am on Saturday September 10th, 2011. This is the second day of the 10th Annual International Plein Air Painters Paint Out. We have 20 artists participating in the Rockport Event which was cosponsored by the Rockport Development Group.
The tugboat is a bit dented but has a lot of proud character. The tugboat owner thought that the name meant "big wind" in some native language. An internet search revealed... The name Ishpeming comes from the Anishinaabe language ishpiming, meaning "on top" or "from above" or "upon high." Ishpeming, in the Ojibwa dialect of the Anishinaabe language, also means "Heaven".
