Get Ready for Gathering Outside Again.....and Monhegan Island,ME, Again.....





Spring is finally happening around here and it won't be long before you are seeking the shade of a tree, cool drinks and the company of friends clad in short sleeves....I can't wait.

Monhegan Island Workshop in Maine: June 4-10, 2016

 Frank and the Island Inn on Monhegan Island, ME have teamed up for a second year for a full week of a painting workshop....a combination of hard work and rustic comfort, on this gem of a destination, 13 miles out to sea....

Would you love to get away with your easel and paint for a week in one of the region's most lovely places??? You can also hit the 17 miles of hiking trails, visit the Monhegan Museum up on lighthouse hill, beach comb, visit the library and read, shop in boutique stores, visit artist's studios, eat a lobster roll on Fish Beach, try Monhegan Brewery's latest home crafted brews, climb on a shipwreck, that is, when time allows....

....because you will be busy painting, as Frank barely takes a break, and you will learn a ton about blocking in  a painting, value, color, composition, and drawing. Here is the link for more information....
