Many of my online friends love lighthouse art and have asked if they could get their hands on one of my lighthouse paintings to hang in their home. In order to accommodate these requests I have teamed up with Fine Art America. They create an assortment of art items that you can purchase with my lighthouse art adorned on them, including fine art prints and canvasses.
Several of my lighthouse paintings from my book "Keepers of the Light" are available there. As new paintings are created, I will try to make them available, also. I tend to forget unless reminded.
The above is a painting of Crisp Point Lighthouse that I painted on our trip during the Michigan Lighthouse Festival held at Whitefish Point in the summer of 2018. Crisp Point graciously hosted a book signing for us inside the lighthouse on a rainy day. If you are able to visit this remote setting, pick up a signed copy of our book, "If I Were A Lighthouse" available in their Gift Shop.
Tawas Point is a Michigan State Park where autumn ushers in the Monarch butterflies on their migration south. Hopefully Michigan will create an abundance of wings this season.
We are usually on hand sometime around Labor Day for a book signing of our Lighthouse Series of books. Due to the unforeseen repercussions of a runaway virus, we will have to see what this year brings. All of our spring events have been cancelled. We hope summer ushers in the Lights.
We will try to supply them with a few signed copies of our Lighthouse Series of books for their Gift Shop as summer rolls around.
Old Wobble Shanks, Waugoshance Lighthouse will be available at Fine Art America as soon as I can get to him. Bombarded by artillery practice, but still standing after all these years. This light is located in upper Lake Michigan and will hopefully be restored. If you would like to help, contact them at their Waugoshance website.
There often seems to be an abundance of fog when one navigates the environments where lighthouses stand sentinel in the wind. I try to capture the cold and isolation of the Light Keepers that stood watch. Even though a bright red and brilliant sky dominates this scape, it still makes me shiver. This painting is up and running on the Fine Art America site.
Where it will lighthouse art lead me with my fingers and rags, I do not know. If you notice finger prints in my paintings, it is because I finger paint and dabble with rags, pens and whatever other paraphernalia might be at hand. Life is not always ordered and calm, it is also full of storms that sometimes push us off course. I plan to do more as the future unfolds.
