Just returned from a week of painting on Monhegan Island. So I’ve been looking at a lot of surf and a lot of rocks. Monhegan is full of artists and has been since the early 1800’s. It’s a tough place to live, especially in the winter. It takes a certain kind of person. This summer, at the island museum there is an exhibit of work by Andrew Winter. Winter and his wife, Mary Taylor…also a painter… moved to Monhegan after several visits and stayed till his death in 1958. Winter often painted the island in winter…some of my favorites!
