"Clouds Over Manana" watercolor & ink 9 x 12
Our favorite summer spot produces beautiful summer skies. We are able to watch the weather approach from the mainland 12 miles distant. We see so much variety in our time there; bucolic clouds float by a la N.C. Wyeth, miles of crystal blue sky with a 270 degree vista, distant thunderclouds with distant rumblings and grumblings, and powerful fronts racing across the water which often split or shoot straight up when they hit the warmth of this little gem in the ocean. The Girls Just Wanna Paint theme for June is "Summer Skies". See all our images here.
There's a great book by Alan J. Faller, longtime Monhegan resident, and meteorologist, which explains the special qualities of the weather on this special island.
Heading back this summer... can't wait!
