Week 40 … #43 Contrast … Evening Light on the Lighthouse

_NIK5266

Lighthouse and buildings, Pemaquid Point Lighthouse, Maine.

One of my favorite Maine artists is Andrew Wyeth who painted the land and people around him in his hometown of Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, and his summer home in Cushing, Maine.  I’ve always found his art of everyday subject matter filled with a haunting sense of urgency and foreboding dread, yet contemplative and silent.   A few days ago, we went to Pemaquid Point Lighthouse for dinner with the hopes of some good sunset photos.  The contrast light on the lighthouse reminded me of Wyeth’s work … a silent and lonely abstract of the stark landscapes of Maine.
