Monhegan Island Workshop July 20-27, 2013

Come and paint the fabled Monhegan Island this summer with Frank, July 20-27, 2013. For decades, Monhegan Island has been on every artist's radar as the place to capture the beauty of the Maine Coast.  And through Frank's instruction, you will paint the craggy coastline, the quaint village, the working harbor, and Monhegan's headlands tumbling into the ocean. When you are not painting, you'll have the freedom to roam the 17 miles of hiking trails that grace this 1.2 mile long island (in typically fabulous weather), to swim if you can brave the cold ocean temps, take a morning yoga class, get a massage, read books from the island library and eat ice cream, lobster, and all kinds of decadence, in the few island restaurants.

Don't delay signing up! Places to lodge will fill up quickly, since July is high season, and you need to secure your spot in the class.  Click here to see the logistics on Frank's Website.

The kids and I will be there too, and besides painting we are always finding fun things to do, beach combing, picnicking after a long hike, catching the talent at the bi-weekly Monhegan Jamboree, harvesting and/or working at the weekly Farmer's market, jumping off the dock and innertubing in the harbor.

COMPLETELY new Body of Work....NUDES....coming in February

For months, Frank has turned his eye,  hand, and palette to creating a whole new body of work that explores the female figure. He is exhibiting with stone sculptor, Gar Waterman, who is showing his Nudibranchs.  So there you have it, Nudes and Nudibranchs, or Nudis for short. Coming this February, to the Kehler Liddell Gallery in the Westville section of New Haven. There will be an opening reception on Sunday February 10th, and a few festive events following, which I will post soon.  Please join us!
