This is the last of the plein air pieces that I painted last month on Monhegan Island, Maine.  Most of the buildings n the island were weathered gray or white.  For those of you who have gone there and painted, I certainly understand why.  For those of you who've commented that you hope to go there some day, I certainly understand why.  It is truly a wonderful place.  Look for the studio pieces that I've been working on since we've been back.

Besides all of the incredible scenes to paint, there are miles of trails to hike.  Sometimes while I was painting my husband would hike.  Other times I hiked, too.  One of my favorite hikes was out to the "Enchanted Forest."  As you hike along there are dozens and dozens (if not hundreds) of little fairy houses built under tree roots, at the base of trees, behind rocks, on branches.  It's amazing.  You turn your head and there's another one!

Here are a few of them!

Debbi, Thank you. So much of the architecture was just neutral. But with the shot of color it was all spectacular! Even in October!

Thanks so much Nancy. It is a wonderful, little island.
