Monhegan Surf and a request

Monhegan Island surf painting
 During the summer, I teach a couple of weeks of Art Studios for Children at North River Arts Society in Marshfield, MA.  Last week, as the young artists were checking in, a friend dropping off her granddaughter  pulled out her ipad.  She showed me these images of my paintings, and asked when she'd see more of them.  

These are paintings from my favorite cove on the south end of Monhegan Island, and from a couple of years ago.  I do love standing on the rocks, listening, smelling, and even tasting the salt air as I paint.  I'm heading back there in August for a week.  You'll find me down past Lobster Cove tucked into the rocks painting, as requested.

Thanks for looking.

  1. These are so beautiful! So free and seemingly casual, but with a careful design of form and color.

  2. What wonderful color - unexpected notes - in these paintings. And the photo of you on the rocks is wonderful. Can't wait to see what you do during your August trip!
