Maine Islands, Summer 2013

We took a few painting and camping pit stops to different islands this summer, Mount Desert Island and North Haven islands, before our annual Monhegan Island retreat.

North Haven came recommended from some new residents, and a different summer visitor, so we had to check it out. It is much bigger than we imagined, had a wonderful town park and several painting possibilities.  Frank's quick oil "sketches" are below.

Firmly on Monhegan soil now since end of July, the light is gorgeous and Frank is busy painting. More to follow shortly.....

Home Sweet Home on North Haven. Across the cove is Burnt Island, one that is reachable on foot during low tide.
