The workshop has ended, we all head home today. It was terrific; our man, Stan Moeller is a wonderful painter and a very articulate and patient teacher.
Wednesday was a free day to paint; I went early to Gull’s Cove and got a nice little painting done there. There was a slide show that Stan put together that evening as well as a critique of works done thus.
Thursday we had a model sit for us, little over three hours. We were set up in the lawn outside of Monhegan House. On Friday, another model and she, too, was tremendous. Natural curly flowing hair, beautiful face, very much Botticelli model, or DaVinci more so – classical.
We had dinner together, I stayed on or near budget and will pack tonight so that I am ready to vacate by 9am. The ferry for me (Boothbay) not until 2:45pm so I will walk through Cathedral Woods and out to Blackhead, then paint near the wharf for couple of hours. Looking forward to concluding this leg of the journey.
Tomorrow Rockland and Camden, a visit to Farnsworth Art Museum to see the Wyeth-Rockwell Kent exhibit, then Portland Head on Monday, beginning driving back to Chicago on Tuesday. It’s time.
