Thomaston” - Oil Painting on Arches 300-lb Watercolor Paper - 22" x 30" - 1976

This Connecticut College Class of 1977 gift to the college was based on drawings and photos from a 1976 trip with two classmates up the New England coast to Monhegan Island, off the coast of Maine. Driving one of the very first, and tiny, Honda Civics made, Charles and his friends stopped here to peer into some moving mist before they stayed overnight in Port Clyde, ME. This is from sketches and photos of the moment. His small egg tempura, “Room on an Island,” is from later on the same journey.
