“One of my favorite locations on Monhegan Island is the area around Lobster Cove and Lobster Point, at the southern end of the Island. I make a point of walking to this area daily to watch the surf pounding the rocks. The painting is of Jamie Wyeth’s house, known as the Kent House, on Lobster Cove. The house was built in 1908 by artist Rockwell Kent for his mother, Sarah. As I painted, a strong cold wind stung my back and chilled me, and periodically I would have to climb down in between the rocks to get out of the wind for a while. Amazingly, the easel stood up to the wind and the painting was completed on location.”- Bradley Hendershot
