This historic Connecticut lighthouse art features Pecks Ledge Light near Norwalk. As a lot of my followers know, I love lighthouses so it’s great when people make suggestions of lighthouses that have special significance to them or they simply think is a particularly beautiful subject. When I went on a hunt for images of Pecks Ledge Light that I would be allowed to use as a reference, I was instantly attracted to old photos that showed it as the lighthouse looked historically. Specifically I used this black and white photo from 1906 that showed the sparkplug style lighthouse when it was new. If you’ve visited Pecks Ledge Light or seen more recent photos of it, the most noticeable difference is that today the circular deck no longer has a roof covering it.
The vintage photo of this historic Connecticut lighthouse otherwise bears little resemblance to the starting point. For some reason when I saw this particular lighthouse, I imagined it on a rainy night with a warm golden glow emanating not just from the beacon at the top but the other windows as well. It’s really pretty against the blues of the night time sky and sea isn’t it?
Here you can see just my lighthouse art itself.
