Year after year, despite raging storms, the lighthouse does its job. No matter the conditions, the lighthouse can be counted upon.
This is one of my favorite lighthouses on the coast of Maine (that’s saying something!), though I have not yet visited it. The day I painted this, I was with my friend in East Boothbay and I chose to paint this lighthouse even though it was at least 15 miles away over mostly calm ocean waters. I looked through the binoculars, memorized, then looked down to sketch what I had seen. Then I took another look, put some paint on the panel, and went back and forth like this until I had my design worked out. The colors were muted, more or less matching what I could see. I used my painting knife and a well-traveled brush to help tell the story.
