Jeff MacNelly. Original Paintings & Limited Edition Giclees


Captain Ahab Retires To Florida


I was out on Boca Grande (10 miles from Key West) and managed to wander onto the Ďbirds onlyí part of the island, earning me a $100 fine.


Well, Jeff had to see the beach. He was the brainiest and most curious person ever. 


We explored the people side of the beach and then walked along in the water to see the bird side.  Walking in the water on the bird side is legal (go figure) but I still kept looking for the marine patrol every few minutes.


The next week Jeff came into the Gallery on Greene with this painting, Captain Ahab.  Over the years Iíve had the chance to think about the real message of the Captain.  There he is retired in Paradise with his turquoise trailer ready to live the good life in his Lilly Pulitzer pants but canít give up his lifelong pursuit of revenge.  Notice the emblem on the shirt, instead of the La Coste alligator, Jeff put in the whale, just to remind us all that itís better to forget!
