A beautiful watercolor painting showing the Bass Harbor lighthouse perched on a cliff, surrounded by wonderful blue water. Located on the quiet side of Mount Desert Island, the lighthouse marks the entrance of Bass Harbor and Blue Hill Bay. You can walk right down to the lighthouse via the main path or go down to the rocks on the right.
This original Bass Harbor Light, Right painting would add serious color to your nautical home decor. It’s a perfect size for adding color and a welcoming feeling to your entryway or foyer.
I painted this at the same time as Bass Harbor Light, Left painting so they could have a conversation.

How accurate are the colors online?
The physical art matches what I see on my computer, but it might look slightly different on yours. For example, the colors are a little more muted on my phone and tablet than on my Mac. Also keep in mind also that the smaller the image, the sharper it appears online and in person.
DO YOU OFFER CUSTOM FRAMING?
I don’t provide framing services myself, but I’m happy to make suggestions! My 8×12″ and 10×14″ original paintings include a double white archival mats and backing board. They are ready to slip into 12×16″ or 10×14″ frames (easy to find). Buying unframed art enables the recipient to choose a frame that perfectly matches their decor.
Should I buy an original painting or a print?
Original paintings require more of a financial investment up front, but they also appreciate more in value over time. There’s also a satisfaction in knowing you have the only original painting. Giclees are more affordable and look exactly like the original paintings, so they are a great option for many.
While many of my collectors only purchase original art, others like to mix it up with both originals and giclees. It really depends on your budget and philosophy as a collector. If you’re just looking for some pretty paintings to add color or to give as a gift, giclees are a perfect choice.
HOW DO I KNOW WHAT SIZE ART TO PURCHASE?
I recommend taping pieces of computer paper together to create a mockup the same size as your art. You can even tape it to your wall with blue framer’s tape get a sense of scale. When you’re thinking about the frame size, you should add an additional 2-4″ on each side to account for the frame width.
I’m happy to help walk you through this process – just contact me.
Do you have an open studio?
I wish! My studio is pretty small, so the best place to view my art is online. I include inspiration photos to help you visualize art in your home.
