"I love lighthouses. The severe, uncompromising life of service lived by lonely lighthouse keepers possesses a special dignity. Poised between the last outcroppings of land and the vast expanse of the ocean, the lighthouse has become a profound symbol of human life, poised as it is between the transitory and the eternal."
- Thomas Kinkade

+++++ And this is what Thomas Kinkade said about this work +++++
"The dramatic lighthouse begins my new print series entitled Seaside Memories; but in truth, the subject of Beacon of Hope is not memory, but faith.

The lighthouse, which guides ships around rocky shoals to a safe harbor, is a principal emblem of the spiritual life. And I'm very proud to say that my own paintings have been described as Beacons of hope.

So Beacon of Hope celebrates not only the longing for salvation, but the power of art to express that aspiration. The print, which is my first on the subject, is not a literal portrait; it is, instead, a product of my artist's imagination, containing the elements of an allegory of faith.

A small boat, barely visible on the horizon, rides heavy seas that surge and crash onto a rocky coast; the lighthouse beacon is its sole guide. The keeper's house is a safe haven against all storms - a charming cottage nestled near a flower laden trellis. And, of course, light -- radiant sunset and warm lamp glow -- bathes the rocks, erasing their sharp edges."

~~Thomas Kinkade

Beacon of Hope Lighthouse

The Beacon of Hope Lighthouse is typical in architecture to New England Lighthouses.

~~~ Maine is the Mecca Of New England Lighthouses There are more than 60 lights along Maine's craggy Down East peninsulas !

~~~ One of the most enchanting to view is "Whaleback Lighthouse" which is owned and operated by the town of Kittery, Maine. Sitting just offshore from Fort Foster, the light was positioned to protect the Portsmouth, NH harbor.

~~~ The tower was constructed in 1872 of unpainted granite blocks topped with a fourth-order lens. Today the light shines a revolving DCB-224 airport-style beacon. The keeper's quarters are integrated into the tower.

~~~ The "Beacon of Hope" is nearest in image to Cape Neddick Lighthouse.

~~~Built in 1879, Cape Neddick is the southernmost of all Maine's lighthouses It is also called Nubble Light, refering to the barran rocky island (the Nubble) on which it sits, just off shore. The 41 foot tower is constructed of cast iron plates lined with brick. Cape Neddick's fourth-order lens flashes red every six seconds, and is visible for 13 miles.

~~~Cape Neddick is an extremely windy point, and viciously cold 100 mph winds caused problems with the flow of oil to the lamp for many years, until electricity came to the Nubble in 1938.

~~Once dubbed the "Graveyard of the Atlantic" for its treacherous currents, shoals, and storms, this entire coastline has a wealth of history relating to shipwrecks, lighthouses, and the U.S. Lifesaving Service, Coastguard air rescue patrol, and search and rescue crews.
