New Canal Lighthouse in New Orleans suffered severe damage during Hurricane Katrina and also Hurricane Rita in 2005.The pilings were destroyed but the lighthouse remained mostly intact. However, the lighthouse was dismantled and a replica built by Pontchartrain Conservancy. The wood from the 1890 lighthouse is incorporated into the present lighthouse. (www.saveourlake.org)
Pondering all this, I became fascinated with the lighthouse’s reconstruction. It resembled a peaceful home, not a lighthouse. I had seen many cylindrical lighthouses; this was my first time seeing a cottage-style lighthouse. Thinking about its construction, the new pilings and the destruction from the hurricanes, I included streaks of blue color and faded dashes of yellow in my painting to symbolize its watery misfortune.
