Monhegan Island, Maine is an incredible place.  I've been talking and posting about it the last few weeks.  Because it's so small, you walk everywhere.  And, everywhere you walk is another painting!  I photoed this piece several times and just can't get the shadow side of the building to read as dark as it's painted.  I'll keep trying!




The lighthouse keeper's house is now the Island Lighthouse Museum.  You can go in this building
 and the ice house, but not into the actual lighthouse.  This station was built in 1824.  
The lighthouse was built in 1850 and animated in 1959.


This gate was right by where I was painting!

Thank you Randall. With all of your water paintings, I know you'd love Monhegan Island if you haven't been there.

Hilda, thanks so much. Sometimes we're just lucky. The light works with us!
