This Isle of Portland greeting card features the Portland Bill lighthouse. The choppy waters of the English Channel fill the scene along with skies that suggest a storm has recently passed. Construction was begun on the lighthouse in 1903 and completed in 1906. It's still in use as an aid to navigation today but was automated in the 1990's. Today this beautiful old lighthouse is also one of the main attractions of a visit to the Isle of Portland.
For many of us Lighthouses capture the imagination. There's a certain nostalgia and romanticism that has built up around them. For many there's also as well a lot of symbolism attached to lighthouses for being a guidepost in the storm. And of course, many surviving lighthouses are simply historic in nature. For me, it's a little bit of all of the above that attracts me to them as subjects for art. And of course, the seaside landscapes where one finds lighthouses is usually beautiful in its own right. Which as you can see from this artwork, is certainly the case here.
And I believe this Portland Bill lighthouse card will catch the eye of many lighthouse aficionados out there. Whether you've visited the Isle of Portland or not, it's simply an amazing scenic landscape on top of the lighthouse itself. If you have visited Portland Bill Lighthouse or have ties to it, I bet this a card with this lighthouse on it is even more special.

What People Are Saying
I'm a Hill and when I saw this I just had to buy it. I have so many fond memories of spending summer weeks down in Montezuma at Nanny and Paw's store. I was so sad when the flood filled the store with water but it was a testament to the community when so many banded together to help out afterwards. Just know I bought this print to frame and take to Nanny so she can enjoy it as well. Thank you so much for making this ❤️

She Loves It!
My girlfriend just received the print, and she loves it! We both love the vibrant colors, and Forsyth Park, Savannah in general, and Tybee Island are special to us because she lives in NC and I live in FL, so every once in a while we’ll meet in the middle and explore together.
Thank you so much!
