"After the Hike" watercolor & ink 6 x 9

The Girls Just Wanna Paint theme for February is "Love".  "After the Hike" is another of my watercolor sketches of Monhegan and its nearby island Manana.  I love the place.  Love all the time I have been lucky enough to spend there with my family and friends, love the way time moves gracefully, and languidly, love the time for conversation, for just being.  I saw this couple sitting on the dock and was drawn to their comfortable posture. They are leaning on each other, looks like they finished hiking on the island.  He has one shoe off, and is adjusting his sock while she looks out at the passing afternoon.  Comfortable, warm, love.
