"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."

Seaside artworks are one of Thomas Kinkade's most popular subjects. The call of the
ocean and crashing waves on rocky cliffs appeal to those who love the sea
such as Navy sailors, Merchant Marines, Coast Guard, and anyone who has ever challenged
the sea in a boat or ship.

+++++ And this is what Thomas Kinkade said about this work +++++
"I am intrigued by lighthouses. Erected in locations of great peril, they
often stand in settings of remarkable beauty and drama as well. Where
nature is most powerful, it can also be majestic.
That is especially true of Split Rock Light erected on the towering
cliffs of Lake Superior's north shore in Minnesota to light the way for the
massive ore carriers that moved a rich treasure of iron ore through from
mines in Canada and the U.S. As I gaze on this beetling cliff, I begin to
understand the legend of the Sirens, whose wild and beautiful song drew
ships to wreck on their perilous rocks. Surely, beauty such as this might
call even a plodding barge to its ruin.
Split Rock Light was built in 1910 and continued to guide ships
through stormy waters until 1969 when the Minnesota park service took over
its management. Now it is perhaps the most visited lighthouse in the U.S.
Guests who make the long drive are rewarded by a breathtaking view of the
rugged limestone light overlooking a majestic promontory.
I've employed artistic license in an effort to capture the drama in
Split Rock Light - a romanticized moonlit portrayal of the glorious
lighthouse - so you can enjoy this unparalleled view without having to
drive the long, rural highway.
~~ Split Rock Light ~~
~~~ Shipwrecks from a mighty 1905 November gale prompted this rugged
landmark's construction. Completed by the U.S. Lighthouse Service in 1910,
Split Rock Light Station was soon one of Minnesota's best known landmarks.
Restored to its 1920s appearance, the lighthouse offers a glimpse of
lighthouse life in this remote and spectacular setting.
~~~ Two Harbors, Minnesota Split Rock Light is unusual, being a complete
20th century light station, with a tower, keeper's house, fog signal
building, and oil house all constructed in 1910. The lens is a gorgeous
Third Order bivalve Fresnel that looks like a big clamshell rather than the
traditional beehive look. The lens contains 242 separate prisms, and was
manufactured by Barbier, Bernard, and Turenne of Paris.
~~~ The light can be seen for 22 miles. The lens rotates, giving off a
flashing white beam. The light was deactivated in 1969, and today is lit
once a year on the anniversary of the wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald. Part
of the incentive for building Split Rock was the Lighthouse Board's concern
that "the unusual magnetic attractions in the neighborhood make navigation
difficult in thick weather." The tower stands atop a 130 foot high cliff.
~~~ The height of this site makes for a spectacular view out over Lake
Superior and along the rocky shoreline. It is said to be the most visited
Lighthouse in all of the US.
