Rainy Day on Monhegan Island

10 x 8  Oil on Gessobord

This was a cold and rainy day in September on Monhegan Island, Maine.  The wind and rain were coming sideways hitting you in the face, causing puddles and muddy streams, but I wouldn't have changed it for the world!  The sound of the waves crashing on the rocks and the smell of island dampness is heaven.  I painted in the dining room of the inn I was staying at with other varied artists I did not know.  There was a wonderful camaraderie.  No stress, no worries...just being in the moment. Then, out in the elements for coffee at the only place that sold espresso.  Crowded, but worth the wait :-)  I'm not going back this year, but I'm there in my mind...
