Winterhaven is part of a project A Part of The Maine initiated this winter, 2017-18 taking a look at the islands of Penobscot Bay in Maine. Together with painter Anneli Skaar, we wanted to explore the islands in the off-season, when the summer people have left, the weather turns colder and island life becomes harder.
There is a myth and a romance to the islands, where life is not easy, but a shared sense of history and community keeps a small cadre of fishermen and locals there year round.
This work focuses on the islands of North Haven and Vinalhaven, These islands off the coast of Rockland are so close to each other, yet so different in character.
