Limited edition giclée print of The Lighthouse Keeper II from The Jobs of Yesteryear Series. Printed on acid-free paper with archival inks and mounted permanently to a custom-made wood box panel. This print is ready to hang and has the look of the original painting for a fraction of the cost. The Jobs of Yesteryear are thought-provoking conversation pieces that will bring an air of history and whimsy to any room.

Lighthouse keepers were responsible for maintaining the light and lens that helped ships and planes navigate coastlines safely. They were responsible for replenishing the oil in the lamps, trimming the wick, and winding any clockworks used. The implementation of electricity, as represented by the power lines, and other automated functions made the role of the lighthouse keeper redundant.

The original painting was created on stained birch wood panel using only three colors of acrylic paint, which gives the work a monochromatic theme of warm greys and creams and have the feel of a black and white photograph steeped in history. The long limbed characters are crafted using hundreds of hand-torn bits of kraft paper collaged on top of watercolor paper and painted with an acrylic wash.
