So, Monhegan Island has been a picturesque lobstering and fishing community since who-knows-when. For about the past 100 years, it's been a haven and inspiration for artists like Edward Hopper, Rockwell Kent, all the Wyeths you can think of, and George Bellows. But, perhaps wisely, they've treated it as a summer escape. It takes a special kind of artist to haul yourself and your young family up to remote Monhegan in the winter time! That artist is Frank Bruckmann. These paintings are on their way to studio21south! Also, you can follow this painter's progress (and that of his lovely family) on their blog!
