Nov/Dec 2022

This is the 25th year that Maine artist Virginia Souza has created an original whimsical painting for the holiday cover of Lighthouse Digest. This year, it’s the Whitefish Point Lighthouse in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula on Lake Superior, near the community of Paradise. Her painting is titled “Santa’s Milk and Cookies,” and refers to the fact that instead of getting milk and cookies, this time Santa has reversed the tables and is serving them. The 11”x17” prints of this year’s cover image are $20 each, plus shipping and can be ordered from Virginia Souza, Painted Pirate Gallery, 649 St. George Rd, S. Thomaston, ME 04858. (207) 502-9889. Email: vesouza.maineart@gmail.com. If you have a special lighthouse that you’d like painted or something else like a painting of your favorite pet or your home, or other subject, she can also do that. All she needs is a photograph or two to work from - just contact Virginia and let her create a personal masterpiece for you.
