A Look Back ~ Monhegan Revisited

Before my recent painting trip to Monhegan (June 4-10, 2007), I painted there 16 years ago. At that time, I was there with Jack (my husband & fellow artist) and our 5 children. After a few days of lugging my French easel around and doing oils, I turned to my other medium...watercolors. They are much lighter, so hence, much easier to transport. In addition, they dry quickly, and they are easier to store, with little or no damage. This is a quick little study of my daughter, Priscilla, sitting on the rocks by the harbor in morning light. It is 16 years old! It is funny to see how little Monhegan has changed. Priscilla, on the other hand, now has children of her own. Time flies!
