The gulp and the artist

Birds flocking together subject of painter's work

A group of cormorants, known as a “gulp,” roosting on a dinghy off Rocky Neck, caught the eye of painter Brett X. Gamache of Salem.

The gulp has become the subject of Gamache’s latest painting.

The Rocky Neck Art Colony’s artist-in-residence said the boat is a favorite roosting place for the birds.

“Usually, at high tide, they hang out there,” he says. “I kind of have to check the tide chart to see when they’ll be back.”
