As I painted the St. Augustine Lighthouse for the fourth time, I found new inspiration...female lightkeepers. St. Augustine Lighthouse had two female keepers: Maria Andreu and Kate Harn.
Armed with this new knowledge I painted the strength and softness of the lighthouse. Clouds lingered above and bright yellow flowers blossomed below. They both symbolized the tenderness of these women who cared for their families and schooled their children. Keepers were a rare breed. It took a lot of courage to work a desolate lighthouse. Families were responsible for growing their own food. Both men and women keepers ensured the light burned at night, rescued shipwreck sailors while keeping the lighthouse in tip top shape.
