Day 5 - Lighthouse Keeper's Roof

Lighthouse Keeper's Roof
6" x 6". pastel

I am always drawn to the angles of roofs and gables particularly red roofs in contrast to cerulean blue skies. Maine, and coastal places in New England and New York, are full of these combos.
This is the Lighthouse keeper's home (which is now a fascinating museum) on Mohegan Island, Maine. I spent a rainy dreary afternoon exploring paintings, photos, historic items and other ephemera of the island, and it's residents and visitors.
