“This watercolour was painted on location on Monhegan Island, Maine. I’ve attempted to capture the early morning light striking the side of the lightkeeper’s house on Lighthouse Hill. I find endless satisfaction in painting the varied angular red rooflines of the lighthouse structures. Here, a red, white, and blue bunting has been hung from the eaves in celebration of Independence Day, and also in recognition of the seasonal opening of the Monhegan Museum, which is housed in the lightkeeper’s house.”- Bradley Hendershot
