Portland Head Lighthouse . Maine . Watercolor . 12" x 16"

... Edward Hopper painted the Portland Head Lighthouse in 1927... several times. He made such a fine piece of art, I decided I had to see this for myself...
and so... I visited early one bright sunny morning in July of 2012... and now I've painted it. It is as majestic a site as I imagined it would be.
As I clambered around the place... a toothpaste television commercial was being shot behind me... further down the path from this view.
There were at least 60 people involved in that... their production included a catered breakfast...
and I wasn't invited...

A Giclee Print is available of this watercolor painting / lighthouse art > Details & Overview Here.
