Swallowtail Welcome

As we enter August, we hit the busiest time in visitor travel to Grand Manan Island, ranked at #3 among the Seven Best Small Islands in the World.  And the first major landmark to be noticed by a visitor is Swallowtail Lighthouse, as the ferry rounds the Swallowtail peninsula to approach the Island terminal.  The print I am featuring this week is a reproduction of my painting "Swallowtail Welcome".

This painting is done in the warm colours of summer, depicting calm water and showing the Lighthouse from an angle that would be seen from the ferry

Of course we need a welcoming committee, a couple of seagulls coming out to welcome the ferry and all the visitors aboard.

And being a nice calm summer day for the arrival of our visitors, we have the reflection on the calm ocean water of the lighthouse and the rocky shore.
