Burnt Island Light

Burnt Island Light

Piece description from the artist

This lighthouse is the second oldest light in Maine. The conical tower on Burnt Island is built of granite likely quarried on the island and stands thirty feet tall. The four-foot thick walls at the tower’s base have given it such stability that it has never been rebuilt, and today it is the second-oldest original lighthouse structure in Maine, behind the Portland Head Light, built in 1791 when Maine was still part of Massachusetts.

I caught this view while a passenger on an old wooden schooner under sail. This painting is oil on paper, adding a distinct textural element under the layers of paint.
