Monhegan Lighthouse

I painted "Monhegan Lighthouse" a year after I took the photo. I "collect" lighthouses. I've loved them ever since I can remember. I found this sentinel on my first trip to Monhegan Island, sometimes known as "the artists' island", since everywhere you look you will find someone painting, and the tiny island is home to a good many galleries. I enjoyed hiking to various cliffs and doing small paintings while I was there, and have a nice collection of photos for future reference.

Watercolor Shows

This is the time of year when many national and regional art societies are having their annual shows. My painting "Dahlia", 22x30, is currently showing at the NorthEast Watercolor Society's annual members juried show in Middletown, NY. I love participating in these shows, as well as meeting the other artists and seeing their work.
