Frank had to paint the lupine at least once....they are just about over now, it was a treat to experience their rise and fall in the meadow across from the aptly named "Lupine Gallery", which the owners Jackie and Billy say... for at least one month a year, the gallery's name makes sense.

Dead Tree-6x8" oil painting by Frank Bruckmann©
There are many a dead tree on monhegan, they are all over the landscape on the back side, particularly between gull pond to gull rock. Usually the subject is not the first choice for artists to paint, but Frank obviously was inspired...
