I started my love affair with lighthouses years ago when we rented a room atop a lighthouse in the West Indies. The light is so intriguing with its spiritual connections and symbolism of hope that these lights will guide you to your home harbor safely.
Bakers Light on Bakers Island
Medium - CollagraphSize 9 ¼ X 11 ¼Price $600
Bakers island was not very far from a harbor where we lived 50 years ago. It's a privately owned island by the Bakers. A funny story, a guy came to our back door in Manchester and held up some keys and said "did you lose some keys?" and I said no, but who are you?It turned out he was the lighthouse keeper. We called the lighthouse horn, Mrs. Baker’s cow.

MeditationMedium - Collagraph (Variant)Size 9 x 17Price $600
There's a special place on the water near Marblehead where I've always enjoyed sitting. The plate was made many years ago I think it was carborundum and modeling paste tapes for the chairs then the magic of intaglio printing mixed with relief printing with rollers covered in oil paint gliding over the inked and wiped collagraph plate. No wonder I am considered the icon of collagraph printmaking it's complicated but it's lots of fun.
