Monhegan Chapel

9" x 12" oil on panel
This painting was painted from a photograph taken steps away from the Monhegan House just about sunset. I wanted to show the colors of light in the tree shadow, and how the building caught the low sun and deep shadows. Painting on Monhegan in the early fall is fun because of the clear low light, and the change in the palette of colors. The painting was from this year, but the photo from last year. This year the chapel had a new finial on the steeple.
I love the atmosphere in the chapel for its intimacy. I have met great people and heard wonderful music inside its walls.
