Scottish Art - Paintings of Scotland:
by D. Bruce Bennett
Southerness Lighthouse at Sunset
Sun sets, after an uncharacteristically warm summer's day, blanketing Southerness Lighthouse with a warm coral and gentle maize glow. Located down the road from Sweetheart Abbey, on Southerness Point in Dumfries, it has the distinction of being Scotland's second oldest lighthouse.
Originally built by the Dumfries Town Council in 1748-9, Southerness Lighthouse has been altered and heightened at least three times since. Its now darkened beacon guided ships through the waters of the River Nith estuary and inner Solway Firth until 1936, when it was officially closed.
This Scottish Art is executed in watercolor style and matted "museum style" to give this little gem the importance it deserves. A nice selection from our Paintings of Scotland for that lighthouse buff on your gift list, don't you think?
