8 x 10 oil on Linen Board
I have gone to Monhegan Island four times and have never experienced rain until the last trip. The people all headed for shelter except for a few hardy souls. I was one of them..although I am hardly a hardy soul :-) I was looking for coffee...Where are Starbucks when you need them? This painting only shows the beginning of the storm. What came later was pouring, blowing rain and lots of mud. I wound up painting in the dining room of the Inn. Honestly, it was a wonderful experience. No phones, TV, interruptions. Only a ticking clock and the sound of rain.
