Manana Glow

oil on canvas panel 9" x 12"
This painting is the first finished of a group of three, painted from photos taken this September on Monhegan Island during Stan Moeller's workshop. The photos caught my attention because of the effects of light at low angles as the sky begins to darken. Getting the colors right on the island is always a bit of challenge - the warm purples and greens want to come forward, and need to be cooled down a lot. This island manages to sit back where it is. I had fun painting it.
