The Lighthouse and the Tugboat

"The Lighthouse and the Tugboat", stained glass inspired painting

This piece was inspired by a story that I originally wrote for my partner. It tells of a short, stubby lighthouse that longs to be of use to someone and of a scrappy tugboat that fears the ocean’s great storms will one day swallow him up. In their partnership, however, they discover how much more each of them can be together.

The painting was created to be included as part of my solo exhibition, Find Your Heart(h), which celebrated the relationship between myself and my partner ahead of our wedding in 2019.

My partner also recorded a podcast reading of the original short story that was included alongside this piece in the exhibit.
