Holland Harbor Light 1907 Giclee

Regular price $245.00 Sale

Holland Harbor's iconic light house, 'Big Red', wasn't always red.

In 1907 the light house building was added as a companion to the tower. It was all painted WHITE. (Not Big Red yet). There was a raised walk for service access. Wood pilings made up the break water. This painting was requested by the Big Red Classic Fishing Tournament for their anchor sponsor award. It was difficult finding any reference images to create the piece. I worked from a black and white photo found in one of the archive books at the library. There was no light source or color to help so much of the piece is imagined in. The books on Macatawa history were fascinating. What a happening place it was at the turn of the century.

The mini giclee is 6" x 4 1/2", matted to 10" x 8".  It goes right into a standard frame.  Mat colors are whites or cremes and vary.
