Portland Head Light is the quintessential Maine lighthouse and one the most photographed lighthouses in America. How was I going to find a unique angle on a vertical canvas that captured its dramatic beauty? I started sketching this magnificent light in March but did not find the right composition until late August when the prominent shadows gave me the depth I was looking for. To add further drama, I reduced the number of colors I was witnessing to green granite rocks, black shadows, and a cream-colored sky. Gray distant clouds added the final touch and made this beautiful scene bolder with a greater depth perspective.

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

•The Portland Head Light Maine's first Lighthouse

•President George Washington appointed the first keeper.

•The current keeper's house was built in 1891.

• The Christmas Eve shipwreck of the Nova Scotia bark "Annie C. Maguire" from Buenos Aires, Venezuela occurred in 1886. All 21 crew and passengers walked off unto shore. They were exhausted and half-starved surviving only on salt beef, macaroni, and lime juice to prevent scurvy. The keeper's family had prepared a Christmas dinner consisting of chicken pies, steamed vegetables and pastry. This was a joyous occasion for the ravenous refugees but not quite for the involuntary Good Samaritans. However, they never faltered in their hospitality. The uninvited guests left for Portland after three days having nearly eaten the kind keeper out of his home. As much as possible was salvaged from the "Maguire" before a storm on New Year's day 1887 destroyed the ship.
