Thousand Islands Hand Painted Lighthouse Collection

Posted by

A lighthouse is a metaphor for life.  Guiding us past the rough patches and seeing us through.  A lighthouse gives us the courage to move forward, removing any doubt in the truth that we will be able to press on and make it past challenges and weather the storm, the fogginess we sometimes feel stuck in, and the rocky areas that make us feel we might bottom out.  Our lighthouse can be a special moment in time that we grasp onto, a friend to reach out to, or just our passion for life and fulfilling our dreams.  A lighthouse can mean so many different things to so many people.  A lighthouse is a thing of beauty cherished by many.

Set of Six Hand Painted Thousand Island Lighthouse Collection

Thousand Islands Lighthouse Collection

Rich with history and beautiful stories behind them, the Lighthouses of the St. Lawrence River are a gem that brings nautical magic to the region.  We love to view them, learn about them and take in the majestic wonder that surrounds a lighthouse.  The sunsets that accompany them, the shimmery reflections off the water that dance along side them, and just simply put, we just love lighthouses on the river.

Sunken Rock Lighthouse Hand Painted Wine Glass

Each wine glass appears as though there is a message written inside the glass.  There is no actual paint inside the glass.  I write the words in reverse in a method I call "reverse painting".
