Monhegan Island

(click to enlarge)

Just back from Monhegan Island, Maine.  This is Jamie Wyeth's house, formerly Rockwell Kent's studio.  Monhegan is a spectacular place, especially for painters.  This unique island is particularly beautiful this time of year, as the number of visitors dwindles, and there's a crisp feel to the air as summer wanes and life returns to its normal, rustic tranquility for the 40 or so year-round hardy residents.


  1. Great painting Ken! When I was on Monhegan, I didn't get there, but your piece takes me. Beautiful and powerful piece.

  2. You captured the day perfectly. Love the color and freshness in this painting!
