What a beautiful place - especially the strong light on the rocks!

I can feel the warmth of the sun on the rocks. It's a lovely piece, and along with yesterday's sunny painting, makes me want to be there!

As Don Gray (whom I admire the works) I like the structure of the rocks of the foreground and the intense luminosity which you perfectly translated in this painting. It is really fine. (I don't know if you can understand what I said, sorry).
Is your name of French origin ?

you've done these rocks really well.
You're inspiring me to get out the zillion photos I have of Monhegan and get painting :D

Thanks Helene, I had a good time with that structure as well and I like the contrast of the foreground and the backrgound.
As for my name, I'm proud to say it's Italian in origin!

Thanks Mary, I have a lot of those Monhegan photos too. It's hard to know which one to work from!

This is a beauty, Cooper. Love the strong angular handling of the rocks (and the warms and cools within them) and that glare on the water you do so well.

Cooper, the shimmering water is what draws me. Really like this piece.
So you're of Italian descent... alright!
There's two of us.
