"In the Dinghy" 9 x 12 watercolor & ink
Manana is a very small, mostly uninhabited, island just west of Monhegan. Aside from providing a sheltered harbor for the larger island, Manana also provides a gorgeous backdrop from almost every vantage point on the east side of Monhegan Island. I enjoy painting Manana, looking at Manana as I meander through my days, and collecting paintings of Manana. I am thrilled to have added a lovely study of Manana by Alison Hill to my collection.
"In the Dinghy" is a sketch of the harbor from Fish Beach. The father and daughter made several trips from the beach to their mooring, reminding me of my days as a child in our old dinghy rowing back and forth just because I could. Thanks for looking.
