Lyndia Baird-Wellwood – Lighthouses of the Northumberland Shore

Nova Scotia’s famous lighthouses have saved many souls in the past. Now local artist Lyndia Baird-Wellwood is doing her part to save the future of these important provincial icons. Lyndia and two friends (Maureen and Katrina DeAdder) drive around Nova Scotia, taking photos of lighthouses. Lyndia then takes these photos back to her home studio and paints portraits of them. Artist’s intent: “I hope that my art will draw attention to the Nova Scotia Lighthouse Preservation Society, and help raise funds to preserve and archive lighthouses in Nova Scotia.” | http://www.georgeklass.com/Lyndia/index.html
