The first in Charles Wysocki’s Sentinels of the Sea series, this painting was inspired by the Rockland Breakwater lighthouse in Maine. Charles liked to tell stories in his paintings and along the New England seacoast he found them everywhere, from whaling museums to captain’s houses to 19th century light-houses. A member of the U.S. Lighthouse Society, Charles loved to paint both real and imagined New England lighthouses.

"They are unique expressions of human creativity," said the artist.

“Physically, they represent triumphant solutions to complex engineering problems. Emotionally, they conjure peril, rescue and poetry."

Start your Sentinels of the Sea lighthouse collection with "Rockland Breakwater Light" where warmth glows from every window and a palpable sense of adventure is in the air as you leave your onshore worries behind knowing that this grand dame will watch over you.




Charles Wysocki
Some things about Charles Wysocki’s life can be anticipated. For instance, he collects Early American toys, tobacco tins, folk art, clocks, crockery and books. High on the list of favorite places are Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard . . . and all of New England. Other things are a surprise: while he paints typically New England scenes, he lives in California. Yet one only has to look at his work to understand the person. Born in Detroit in 1928, Wysocki enjoyed an active and happy boyhood, which seems reflected in the spirit of his work. Since early childhood, he had no other desire than to be an artist. After two years in the Army, Wysocki headed west to the Art Center School in Los Angeles, the city where he met his wife Liz, to whom he attributes much of his inspiration because she grew up on a farm. The aspects of her life that affected him were the basics: hard work, personal closeness and contentment with life’s "little things." Wysocki adds, "I hope my paintings revive pleasant thoughts of a bygone era and express a semblance of order and serenity that fills a need in this fast- changing world. I like to add a touch of humor into my work. I see life on the lighter side, in much simpler and more basic forms." Wysocki’s award-winning art is sought-after internationally and has been published in two books, American Celebration and Heartland.
