White Shoal Lighthouse
4.75 55 $4.75 - $55.00
This is the only diagonally candy striped red and white lighthouse in the world! It originally was tiled with gleaming white tile, but the grout did not weather well and it was sprayed with a gray cement like material. The problem was it could not be seen by ships on gray days or fog. The light acts as a turn signal to boats to turn east to the Straits or west to Escanaba, or south down the west shore of Michigan to Chicago, so they decided to give it a paint design that couldn’t be missed. I have painted this on a bright sunny day with blue sky. The light boasted a very large second order Fresnel Lens which now is in the Whitefish Point. All prints come with a brief history of the lighthouse and the artist. This is available in prints and card.
Small and large prints are shipped rolled gently into a mailing tube for maximum protection. They are shipped without mats and frames so recipients may select something in their own style.
