WOOD ISLANDS LIGHTHOUSE PAINTING
This is another lighthouse painting from my series. It is about 12"x12". I used only paint knives to paint this. I'm always trying new techniques.
The Wood Islands Lighthouse near the NFL ferry terminal was built in 1875, electrified in 1958 and destaffed in 1990.
It was the second lighthouse built after Prince Edward Island came under the control of the Federal Department of Marine and Fisheries in 1873.
It was recognized as a federal heritage building in 1992 and was moved inland 70 metres in 2009 because of erosion.
