Private Island Workshop

Last weekend I taught a four day painting course out on a private island here off the coast of Mount Desert Island. It was like returning to the 1940's as the house has not changed and the island is pristine and magical. We did have some rain but we built a big fire inside and our model lounged by it's warmth as we painted. Here are a few pics from our days out there. I will be doing it next year so stay tuned.
