Lighthouse Attire

10 x 8 Oil on Archival Board


Continuing on with my art patron series...A man studying Edward Hopper's "Lighthouse at Two Lights" (1929) at the MET.  I have always loved Hopper, and this piece is a favorite so it was a thrill to see it 'up close and personal".  Looking into the history of this painting, Hopper apparently painted it to "signify a pleasurable reprieve from his life in New York."  The day we were at the MET was an extremely hot NY day, and you certainly could feel the salt air of Cape Elizabeth, Maine. This man was in perfect gear...flip flops and all.
