"Above the Rocks II" is another of the North Haven Island-inspired paintings by Tommy Thompson. The Island off the coast of Maine is replete with so many subjects to paint that it is difficult to zero-in on one particular one. The quaint island remains almost untouched by commercialism. The artist and his wife have enjoyed exploring the island and discussing its history at the island museum of their good friend Lewis Haskell, who grew up on the island during the early 1900s. Lew has compiled a collection of stories about his life on the island, entitled "Cold Milk and Apple Pie."
