Portland Head Light In The Snow - Winter Night Greeting Card
This original winter night greeting card features historic Portland Head Light in the snow. This Maine landmark is a popular subject for art so it's always a little daunting to tackle a subject that's probably been photographed and painted from every angle and in every season, etc. But I genuinely love old lighthouses, so Portland Head Light was a subject I had to do at least once. I often depict lighthouses on rainy nights, and maybe some day I will do another of Portland Head Light like that, but right now, it's winter and I love the magic of snow blanketing the earth so I thought a snowy night scene would be perfect. I feel like you can almost see your breath when you look at this wintry view of Portland Head Light. Yet there's something particularly warming about the golden glow of the lighthouse and the windows of the keeper's cottage.
And there have probably been many winter nights where you could have seen Portland Head Light in the snow as depicted here. After all, it's Maine's oldest lighthouse. It was completed in 1791 and was commissioned by none other than George Washington. Although still an active nautical beacon, the light was automated in 1989. The keeper's cottage has since been put into use as a maritime museum. The light was added to the United States National Register of Historic Places in 1973. So there's no question it's got a long and pedigreed past.
