The Lupine Gallery has the summer exhibit of Frank Bruckmann’s work at the Island Inn (Monhegan, Maine). WHAT A TREAT! His paintings are fabulous, many are of Monhegan, a place many of us know and love! So… the two paintings I’m showing you today are different, the painting above is Art Materials… I think this is such a fabulous painting – I love how there is a little abstractness to it, it brings out so much more character than if it were painted exactly as it is.
The Island Inn is a gorgeous inn that sits regally atop a hill, it seems to welcome you back to the island year after year. It’s always exciting to see the featured artist for the season. I love that they have an ongoing show, featuring a different artist each year. You can see some of the work from the show by clicking on this link:
I think self-portraits are a great way to get to know an artist. It lets you see not only them, but their space as well. Looks like Frank has one heck of a spot to paint, doesn’t it? Great painting!
Here are a few images from the Lupine Gallery Facebook page – check them out, there are many great photos!
Below is information from the Lupine Gallery. If you’re on Monhegan be sure to stop in the gallery, it’s a magical place! We could spend hours there (and we do)! If you’re looking for somewhere to stay on Monhegan, always consider the Island Inn, but make plans, reservations are usually (but not always) required. You never know when someone will cancel!
