After a hectic visit at Martha’s Vineyard, I was looking forward to a quiet stay on Nantucket Island. After all, the entire island is a sanctuary and that is what I needed. The cobble stoned streets set the pace for a relaxing stay and were reminders of yesterday.
The island has not always been a sanctuary or a peaceful resort. Nantucket once known as the “Whaling Capital” of the world, is featured in Herman Melville’s tumultuous novel, “Moby Dick.” The first lighthouse was built in 1746 after Sea Captains demanded a lighthouse to protect their investments.
New England's shortest lighthouse now welcomes tourists instead of whaling vessels.
Brant Point Lighthouse has a reputation for reinventing itself; it has been rebuilt more than any other lighthouse in the United States.
My painting evokes the peaceful mood and beckoning call of the tiny 26 feet lighthouse.
