The Wyeth House at Lobster Cove - 2 ways

Post by minniev » Mon Nov 11, 2019 4:29 pm

I made two trips to Lobster Cove this time on Monhegan. On the stormy day, only Dave and I would venture out there, but on a later sunny day, everyone went. The house is a bit famous because of painter Andrew Wyeth and his painter son Jamie who still lives and works there when on the island. The place and the name are attractions for visiting painters as well as guys who just wanta lounge around with their dogs. And also photographers...

Thanks Frank. The guy had his paint box on a tripod rather than a traditional easel, probably easier to haul over that rough trail. The painting is stuck into the top of the paint box. And yeah, the guy and his dog are lounging in the rocks. Lots of dogs live on Monhegan, and visit there, very dog friendly.

I like them both for their contribution to sense of place, but the story told by the second image is very special. Those slippery rocks look very inviting and I can only imagine the storms that house has seen from that wonderful vantage point.

Love the B&W with the dramatic waves Minnie. That was probably the best time to go visit that area. Dramatic clouds and rough waters really sets the mood.

Thanks Piet, I agree with your conclusion.

Oh yes, we went at the perfect time, Dave.
