At Hole In The Wall

Original oil painting


At Hole In The Wall. 40ins x 30ins. 2016. POA.

At the southern tip of Abaco, Bahamas, the rocky, steep cliffs had an archway carved through, by the sea, over the centuries. Painted by Winslow Homer and other seascape painters. The lighthouse at Hole In The Wall was built by the British Imperial Lighthouse Service in 1836. The archway, after which the area is named, was destroyed by Hurricane Sandy in 2012. Nevertheless, this part of the Bahamian island of Abaco still presents a dramatic subject for marine art painters, the crashing waves echoing across the rocks below. This seascape oil painting is a very unusual and fascinating piece of Bahamas art, with a story to tell.
