"Hillsboro Inlet Lighthouse" by Carol Thompson

Hillsboro Inlet Lighthouse

"Built in 1904 for the St. Louis World's Fair, this unusual light was purchased by the government and shipped to Hillsboro Inlet near Pompano Beach, Florida.  It has weathered many severe hurricanes due to it's sturdy skeletal construction.  A curtain was installed on the landward side after it was discovered that the sunlight concentrated through its powerful lens was starting brush fires on the ground."

Artist comment:  "I enjoy seeing my subjects in person, so on a trip to Florida my husband and I made it a point to visit the lighthouse at Hillsboro Inlet.  The weather was (of course) warm and sunny.  I chose a spot quite some distance from the site so as to photograph it without distortion.  In my home studio later, I used oil on linen canvas to depict this unusual lighthouse."
