This original lighthouse at Ferris Point was built in 1838 but is no longer a working lighthouse. It remains, however, as a base for maintaining buoys, and a treasured part of the region's history. I am fascinated with painting lighthouses!

This piece is on heavyweight paper mounted on birch plywood and will need a frame for display.
