Here are two of the four plein air paintings I completed while on Monhegan. (I’ll share the other two next week.) All four paintings are 9″x12″ and done in pastel.

Squeaker Cove, above, I painted last year from a different vantage point. This time I was perched higher above it. I think it is my favorite place on the island.

One of my new discoveries on the island this time were the Rowan trees with their clumps of bright orange berries. This is the first time I’ve painted one (see below), but it won’t be the last!

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.
