3 sizes- Watercolor Print of Oak Island Lighthouse, from a Painting by Laura Poss // 5x7, 8x10, 10x14 // Southport North Carolina
Materials: watercolor paper, archival inks
Oak Island has been my beach vacation spot for over 25 years, and its lighthouse was the first one that I painted with watercolors. The Oak Island Lighthouse is North Carolina's youngest lighthouse, built in 1958. It can be seen for 16 miles, and is a favorite view from Southport, Oak Island, and Bald Head Island. The actual structure is 153 feet tall, but it stands on a slight rise. There is no spiral staircase as found in most older lighthouses, but instead a series of ships ladders with a total of 131 steps to the gallery level. Pretty neat!
Available sizes: 5 x 7 inches (12.7 x 17.8 cm), 8 x 10 inches (20.3 x 25.4 cm), and 10 x 14 inches (25.4 x 35.6 cm). Please make your selection before adding to cart.
About the printing technique:
My prints are made using a technique called giclée (zhee-clay). They really look and feel like original watercolor paintings because my printer uses a super-fine spray of archival-quality ink to print on real watercolor paper. It also uses superior range of color and produces even blending, so there are no dots or visible signs of printing at all. All of my prints come hand-signed and numbered and placed in a clear protective sleeve. (Any picture frames or other props in the listing photos are not included with this purchase.)
I ship same day whenever possible and most orders will ship within 24 hours, Monday through Saturday. (24-hour shipping time is not guaranteed, but please message me if you have a shipping question or are in a hurry.) Please note that I cannot be responsible for postal delays after items have been shipped, but I will do everything I can to help you get your items as soon as possible.

Artist's Statement and Bio:
I create art because I am compelled to do so. The feeling I get from creating something that pleases my senses—and hopefully the senses of others—has held me in its grasp as long as I can remember. When I see something that captivates my eyes, I immediately start thinking about how to translate it into a drawing or painting.
I have been working as a professional artist for over 13 years and have been practicing drawing and painting my whole life. I am a native of Greensboro, North Carolina, where I currently live and maintain a studio. I also teach watercolors to students of all levels and love to share my deep passion for the medium with others.
I am incredibly honored to have sold paintings to collectors from around the world and to have received numerous prestigious awards for my work. Most notably, I achieved Signature Membership in the American Watercolor Society in January 2021, which is earned by receiving juried acceptance into 3 separate AWS International Juried exhibitions and is meant to be an indication of the painter having established a consistent style and to have demonstrated considerable skill in the medium. I am also a Signature Member of the Southern Watercolor Society, Watercolor Society of North Carolina, and the Pennsylvania Watercolor Society.
