Historic Radiance, Original Mixed Media Painting


At 8 x 10 inches, the painting balances the intimacy of its size with the ability to transport the viewer through time and space.


This mixed media artwork on canvas intricately combines gesso, cardstock, inks, acrylics, soft pastels, and charcoal to depict the historic Aguadilla Lighthouse in Puerto Rico. Commissioned in 1922 to replace its predecessor damaged during the 1918 earthquake, the lighthouse stands tall at 60 feet, unattached to any residence. Restricted to Coast Guard personnel, its majestic presence can be admired from the entrance gate and the adjacent golf course. Part of the Puerto Rico Lighthouses series, this 8 x 10-inch piece captures the essence of this iconic structure with a blend of textures and colors, inviting viewers to explore the rich maritime history of the region.
