The lighthouse and the artist

Monhegan Lighthouse & Artist working, photo by Harvey Spears

I arrived early one August morning on Lighthouse Hill and I was painting before the fog even began to lift while wishing for a sunny day. The lighthouse was not my subject, instead I was painting the white, red-roofed buildings to my left, and the large rowboat beside them.
Completely in my zone, I was not even aware of people coming and going at the scene. Later in the day I had the pleasure of meeting a wonderful photographer who had been capturing images in various spots on the island, including some of me at the easel. 
 I hope you will visit Harvey's website and his wonderful blog.

Soon I hope to post the painting I was working on, but it needs a little more work!
By the way, the sun eventually came out.
