Getting off the ferry and walking onto Monhegan Island, Maine felt like being HOME. My grandmother used to summer there so most of the art I grew up surrounded by in my childhood home was collected in the 30's from artists painting on the island.
I had the pleasure of going to Kevin Beers open studio. Click here to see his colorful, light filled paintings. He shared some of his color combinations for his green which he always mixes...naples yellow, ultra marine blue-violet and some black to deepen the green. I didn't have those colors but experimented with ochre and white and ultra blue and black..fun to try new combos.
The best part was when he told me he had heard about a cool group from my area on the South Shore of Boston called GIRLS JUST WANNA PAINT. Loved that!
