monhegan mist
The Monhegan Series of Plein Air paintings were done on Monhegan Island, Maine during the summer of 2015. My daughter, son and grandson and I all went to the island for a little R&R. This is a wonderful place where I had spent several summers as a child and is now a fairly well known artist colony.
These snap shots approximate the views where each painting was done. For me these are more interpretations of a landscape than pure abstracts. Each tries to capture the feeling and emotion of the time and place.
We were on our way to Lobster Cove fairly early one morning and stopped at the edges of these woods. The morning mist was slowly burning off, which this picture doesn’t really capture. The atmosphere was magic.
