This protector of coastfaring mariners is based on a Charles Wysocki painting. Although he now lives in California, Wysocki's fame is largely due to his personal renderings of life in the eastern U.S. New England holds a special place in the artist's heart. He travels to the region a few weeks a year. Accompanied by his wife, he treks the coastline to take in the ocean air and poetic seascape. Every visit is an opportunity to rediscover this enchanting nook of the world, and to understand its every nuance. For Wysocki, the beauty of nature represents a never-ending source of inspiration. In his studio, the artist, with a paintbrush at the ready, draws, from his memory well, the images that will form the foundation for a new work. His paintings, mostly acrylics, are all originals. They are picturesque scenes of early American life. In this case. Wysocki pays homage to the light-house keepers, little-known heros who dedicated their lives to maintaining and guarding the rotating lighting systems so vital to mariner 5. These brave man helped guide the mariners to safety, and are deserving of our deep admiration.
