Monhegan Light

6 x 6 Pastel on Wallis Paper, 16 x 16 Framed
$150 + s/h (Framed)

This is another study done on Monhegan Island. For those who don't know about Monhegan, you have to get there by ferry. There are no cars except for the fishermen's old trucks.  There is one main dirt road that weaves through the village. I can't explain the atmospheric light.  It's just wonderful.  I tried to capture it in this quick piece and am pleased with it.  I was thinking I'd do a "finished" painting, but this, for me, captures the essence of the Island - at least the village. It's like taking a step back in time.
