Pemaquid Point Light is one of my favorite lights partly because it has remained unchanged for so many years. I frequently go to this place for solitude and to collect my thoughts. One can come and watch waves pound the granite shore, see a Fresnel lens up close and think about what daily life was like back then. After many visits and sketches throughout the year I finally found the right composition on a breezy and icy ten-degree January morning. It was so cold that the windows of the cast iron lantern room had crystallized, forming a light haze. Despite the cold I took several photos that helped with my design. As I drew the illustration, I bypassed details such as wires/cables and smaller stones but enhanced the rubble stone texture of the tower with bright light and deeper shadows. By infusing a soothing olive green verdure, coffee-colored rocks, and a blue serene sky, I "warmed up" the scene to be like a perfect summer morning.

With an irregular (artwork) edge this art print does not require matting.
Conceived, created and printed in Maine.

• Pemaquid Indians were a friendly people who traded with Europeans before the 1600's. Of Abenaki origin, Pemaquid means "situated far out."

• Pemaquid Point is the site of the August 1635 shipwreck "Angel Gabriel." The 240 ton ship had 16 guns and bore about 80 immigrants from England. Five lives were lost along with all the horses, cattle and most of the personal belongings.

• The *1903 autumn shipwreck of seiner "George F. Edmunds" sank during a hurricane with two survivors and 14 lost. One of the survivors John Lewis believing he had landed on Seguin Island made his way up to the Pemaquid Hotel to get help.
He later went back to the rocky shore seeking in vain to find his shipmates. That very evening rescuers were amazed to find a little schooner "Sadie and Lillie" ashore on the other side of the point. The captain W.C. Harding also believed he had reached Seguin Island to weather the storm. His crew was saved, but the captain in attempting to get off the wreck, was caught in the tangled rigging and pounded to death on the rocks by his own vessel. In all 15 men perished in the waters of Pemaquid Point that night.
