South Haven Lighthouse

Daniel Bledsaw's avatar Daniel Bledsaw

A lighthouse has always been a symbol of hope in a storm of life! Michigan is known for it's lighthouses and the South Haven lighthouse is a great example of that symbol. Art has been a sort of lighthouse for me and helped me find my way after almost dying from a heart attack two years ago. Last year my ArtPrize was dedicated to my past and how my life was saved from sure death, this year my ArtPrize is about the future and how art can help me find healing and locate my true north after a dark storm in life. The above image is a watercolor sketch for this year's ArtPrize painting, of which I plan to do in oil on canvas at a size of about 30 inches wide x 40 inches tall.
