Artist's Description

“Night, the beloved. Night, when words fade and things come alive. When the destructive analysis of day is done, and all that is truly important becomes whole and sound again. When man reassembles his fragmentary self and grows with the calm of a tree.”
~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Composed in Photoshop using photographs of the Espopus Lighthouse and the Esopus Meadows along the Hudson River, lighting effects, various flood filters individually worked on three separate layers, blending modes and textures. total of 11 layers used, lighthouse has had original background removed.

Note of Interest The Esopus Meadows Lighthouse, fondly nicknamed “The Maid of the Meadows”, was completed in 1871. It replaced an earlier structure built in 1839 on land ceded to the United States Government from the state of New York. The lighthouse was needed on the Hudson River to warn mariners of the mud flats known as the Esopus Meadows located off the western shore of the river.
Legend tells that once there was a meadow in the middle of the Hudson River, big enough for cows to graze on the green grass (how did they get out there?). But the river changed, and now the meadow is underwater at any tide.
