These are some photos from the September workshop on Monhegan. There were 13 painters from all over the U.S., and we had a really fun week, with lobster, wine, and lots and lots of painting!
Our first morning, painting on Horn Hill.
Me painting on my free afternoon.

All aboard. Finally on our way to Manana! On my last visit to Monhegan 3 years ago, I had tried unsuccessfully to make it over to Manana for a hike. This year I was determined. It took us 3 days for everything to fall into place, and we finally made it, though not with the entire group.
Rusty at the helm, on the way to Manana.
Climbing the ramp onto Manana. Island Inn and the ferry in the background.
This building contains an old engine that used to pull supplies up the ramp to the Coast Guard station.

Yes, there are indeed goats on Manana! We spotted 6.
