“This drybrush is not an exact depiction of any one building on Monhegan Island, Maine, but rather an imagined composite of the various fish shacks on Fish Beach. The painting was actually started during a lecture I gave on the Island in the summer of 2007, where I was showing the audience how I replicate the many interesting textures of weathered shingles. After the lecture, I continued on with the painting, inventing the subject as I went, but always keeping the general essence of the fish houses in mind.”- Bradley Hendershot
