Just back from a week on Monhegan Island, ME. This is our ninth or tenth year going to this vibrant locale for a week in July, then another in August. It makes for a choppy summer, but we love it. We spent this past week in a different house than our usual rental, and we invited friends who had never been to the island - lots of firsts. It took me a few hours to acclimate to a new view.
Here is a watercolor sketch from a deck off the living room of the new house, and a photo of the same scene from a slightly different angle. I loved the long view over the village, and the jumble of rooftops stretching from below into the distance. More sketches to come. Happy to be home, and happy to be going back later this summer.
