Rick Daskam. A fabulous artist from Connecticut. Rick is an artist who’s love of Monhegan (island in Maine) is apparent in his work. It’s exciting that this year Rick is the featured artist at the Island Inn on Monhegan! Those of you who have visited Monhegan, Maine and have fallen in love will know this scene and how special it is!

🔆Rick will also be giving a workshop on the island July 7-12, 2019 – More details via this link🔆:

Monhegan Workshop

Here is a blip about Rick and the show from the Lupine Gallery website – see the link below to see the paintings included in the “Island Inn Show”:


Lupine Gallery and the Island Inn are delighted to announce the Island Inn’s 2019 solo show, “Drawn to the Monhegan Light,” an exhibit of oil paintings by Rick Daskam.

Rick Daskam received his formal art education at Paier College of Art in Hamden, Connecticut. After a career in illustration, Rick decided to follow his passion of painting en plein air, and his oil paintings of the landscape and farms surrounding his Connecticut home have been exhibited throughout the CT and NY area and have won numerous awards.

Rick first visited Monhegan in 2002 and fell in love with the island’s rugged beauty. Returning every year for weeks, he immerses himself in painting the landscape from sunup to sundown, producing some of his most memorable works. The exhibit will feature oil paintings that depict Rick’s unique response to the changing light and atmosphere of the island, from quiet village scenes to the power of thundering surf at the headlands.  To view the paintings, click here:http://lupinegallerymonhegan.com/artist/rick-daskam/

Currently, Rick serves as Co-President of the Hudson Valley Art Association. He is also a member of the Salmagundi Club in New York and the Lyme Art Association in Old Lyme, Connecticut. He is represented by Lupine Gallery on Monhegan Island.

The season-long exhibit will run from May 24 to October 13. Please join us at the Island Inn for a reception for the artist Thursday afternoon, June 27 from 2 to 4 pm.

    1. Joe, I have a house plan featured tomorrow. I usually feature house plans on Thursday (unless it’s a busy week, which it has been lately). The house plan posts are more time consuming, but I aim for weekly. The bulk of the time is spent researching architects/designers who have their own plans. Then getting in touch to see if it’s OK to use their images, etc. I’m also trying to limit the number of images I use per post because at a point in the not to distant future I will be unable to upgrade my space (I pay for the max now) – I will have to pay A LOT to have more space (because they bundle the space upgrade with many things I do not need or want). Perhaps donations are the way to go, 😉. In any event, tomorrow there IS a house plan. Thank you for your comment, I appreciate knowing what people are interested in! Also, if you have architects/designers who have their own plans and are really stunning in their design, pass those names along to me via my CONTACT link at the top. Thanks Joe!
