Cape Henry II
This is an artistic rendering of the "new" Cape Henry Lighthouse in Virginia.
For information about the Lighthouses from Preservation Virginia:
"Cape Henry Lighthouse is the first federally funded public works project of the newly formed United States government. It was authorized by George Washington and overseen by Alexander Hamilton. The Lighthouse is situated near the “First Landing” site where English settlers first set foot on their way to settle in Jamestown. Built with the same Aquia sandstone as much of Washington, D.C, the lighthouse guided sea travelers to safety for almost 100 years. The distinctive black and white striped “New” Cape Henry Lighthouse was built in 1881 but remains closed to the public."
"Cape Henry II" is a polymer clay painting, which means the clay is used in a painting technique. The entire piece is made out of clay with only a touch of acrylic paint. The lighthouse glows in the dark as well.
This piece is 8.5 by 6.5 inches at the outer edges, and 5 x 7 inches on the inside of the frame. It sits on a flat surface and can also hang on the wall.
Each of my pieces is made specifically for the frame that it is sold with-- please do not remove the art from the frame.
Please let me know if you have any questions, and I hope you enjoy!
