Brant Point Light
One of an small collection of original watercolors inspired by Nantucket summers and a triptych of the island's lighthouses.
The Painting: "It's impossible to pick a favorite of the lighthouses on the island, each one has such a distinct personality. They all nod to history and the past, but are still very much a part of current island life. From the way that holidays and seasons are marked with decorations on Brant Point Light, to the distant and Northernmost Great Point, whose light still guides mariners' navigation. I love how the Brant Point light offers a hello and goodbye for everyone coming and going in the harbor. It seems the most social of the three lights, standing front and center in its busy location, watching all the action unfold around it, like the host at the center of a party."
The Collection: "To me, the island captures the very essence of summer - it is beach walks and bike rides, sailing and surf, hydrangeas and climbing roses. Losing entire days sitting on a gray shingled porch or stretched out on a towel in the sand, getting lost in a book. It's peaceful and lively, casual and classic. Painting Nantucket allows me to turn summer from a passing moment into a lasting memory."
