Marking the largely submerged rock formation known as Bush Island, Sunken Rock is a little workhorse of a lighthouse built in 1847, and still in service today.  The tiny island is fully occupied by the lighthouse and a boathouse.  It is situated in the St. Lawrence River half a mile north of the town of Alexandria Bay, NY, and within sight of the famous Boldt Castle. This was an early work for me in that I had seen this lighthouse many times but never painted it. I knew it would be far more interesting with a ship next to it, so I had to place the ship in the image so it looked as though it was there. Its popular motif for many river painters but it seems there is always room for one more.

About the canvas printing: The canvas prints are prepared for standard framing stretcher thickness. When the canvas arrives, lay it out to relax for a day or so. Take it to a framer who will build a stretcher and wrap the canvas. The frame you selected will then be made to fit. Dust the surface off regularly without solvents. Remember the top and back of the artwork as well to keep the spiders from making a home. We hope you have many years of enjoying your artwork. Thank you.
