The Backside of Blackhead

The Backside of Blackhead

Though countless artists, famous and not, have painted Blackhead from Whitehead on Monhegan Island, fewer than few have painted the backside of Blackhead seen from Pulpit Rock; it's a longer hike.

A tour boat with barely any tourists aboard passing by
the backside of Blackhead on Monhegan Island
a few minutes before I painted Blackhead.
