Bass Harbor Lobster Boats The tide guides the bow of the lobster boats in the same direction when it fills or empties the harbor. All lined up together in Bass Harbor, it has the feeling of a parade. Located on the less traveled, quiet side, of Mount Desert Island with its protected marina, it is one of the top lobster producing ports in Maine. I challenged myself to work with a limited palette of reds, grays and greens. As I simplified the scene I kept envisioning puzzle pieces fitting together.
