More Palette Portraits on Monhegan Island

Posted Friday, Oct 03rd, 2014 at 1:54pm

I had the chance to spend some more time on my favorite island, Monhegan, where artists often come to paint. I asked each painter I saw if I could photograph their palette. It is an easy question to ask because painters are generally not self-conscious of their palette (I think that is what makes them so wonderful) and I don't feel like I am asking to steal their painterly intellectual property. Pretty soon word got around the island and when I would walk up to painters they would say, "I was waiting for you to ask!" Here are some of the new images.

Here is the painting being made from this palette - sometimes I sneak in a picture of the painting itself!
