Preservation 50 Friday: A Lot of Determination

Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse

Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse

Standing guard over what looks like a haunted house, the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse soars behind trees. My mixed feelings about this lighthouse probably is rooted in the fact that I was told to draw it from the parking lot! I then wondered if I should have asked permission in the first place. Still I knew even in the parking lot, I would be able to see most of the lighthouse.

Lighthouses are pretty hard to hide. As one writer stated ” The very nature of a lighthouse is to stand out: by its height, cost, technical complexity, complex construction, techniques, isolation and spectacular appearance.”

Peering at the lighthouse from the parking lot, I felt disconnected. I transferred my feelings to the paper I was drawing on.
