Bodie Island Lighthouse - Rainy Night Art Print
This rainy night art print features a brilliant view of Bodie Island lighthouse in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Bodie Island Light built in 1872 is the third lighthouse on Bodie Island. It's a 170 foot tall brick lighthouse, one of only about a dozen like it remaining. It's also rare in that it's one of the few lighthouses to retain its original first order Fresnel lens.
I felt like a soaring lighthouse like the one on Bodie Island deserved a sweeping landscape scene and something with a bit of drama. Hence the stormy skies and the rain drops. The foreground is filled with marshy grasses lit in mostly pale blues. On the right hand side you see the warm glow of the window in the lighthouse keeper's quarters. And of course there's the bright light of beacon lighting the skies above.
I would love to know what first attracted you to this Bodie Island lighthouse art print? Do you love lighthouse art in general or did you come looking specifically for an OBX print? I hope you'll share your thoughts about my artwork.
