BURNT COAT LIGHTHOUSE, MAINE WATERCOLOR PAINTING

Burnt Coat Lighthouse, Maine, watercolor painting (9 X12) from a trip last August to Maine.  Burnt Coat Harbor Lighthouse was built in 1872. It's name is a source of debate. Some say it comes from a Revolutionary War soldier who burnt his coat as a sign of rebellion. Others say the source is Samuel de Champlain, who called the area "Brule-Cote," or Burnt Coast, presumably because it was much used by Indians with campfires.   This information was from Maine's visit Maine website .  "I'm a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it." – Thomas Jefferson Please see the paintings purchasing information for some general information about pricing, or email me at bunnygriffeth@gmail.com and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Three Little Pigs Watercolor Painting

Three Little Pigs watercolor painting (9 X 12) on Arches 140 pound paper.  Loved the long afternoon lighting on them...found this beautiful quote about late afternoon sun: “Let the light of late afternoon shine through chinks in the barn, moving up the bales as the sun moves down. Let the cricket take up chafing as a woman takes up her needles and her yarn. Let evening come. Let dew collect on the hoe abandoned in long grass. Let the stars appear and the moon disclose her silver horn. Let the fox go back to its sandy den. Let the wind die down. Let the shed go black inside. Let evening come. To the bottle in the ditch, to the scoop in the oats, to air in the lung let evening come. Let it come, as it will, and don't be afraid. God does not leave us comfortless, so let evening come.” ― Jane Kenyon Please see the paintings purchasing information for some general information about pricing, or email me at bunnygriffeth@gmail.com and I will get bac
