“The painting is of the Ernest Brackett house, built in 1921 on Monhegan Island, Maine. It is located on the main road near the road to the wharf. Ernest and his wife Nellie lived in the house up until his death in 1939. After this, it was inhabited by Nellie and their son, Lorimer ‘Zimmie’ Brackett, who is best known for running the Island Spa during his entire adult life. When I’m on the Island, I walk past the house daily on my way into town or to get provisions. Today, the house blends into the fog-shrouded landscape.”- Bradley Hendershot
