It seems like people go to Monhegan to escape the Mainland and they go to Manana to escape Monhegan, luckily no one is on Manana because I don’t know where they would go to escape. The view from Manana is spectacular, you can sit and watch the town and harbor from a lofty perch as boats and people come and go, especially during the busy summer months. I find the end of the day most enjoyable, when twilight casts a rich blue glow across the island. The day trippers are gone and most of the rest of the village is engaged in their evening meal.
As the raking light fades towards black, the windows of Monhegan houses begin to shine with a yellow amber hue, it is a peaceful and tranquil time.
This painting of Monhegan is painted in acrylic on hardboard and reproduced by giclee printing. This is the fifth in a series of nocturnal works of Monhegan.
