Castle Rock - Marblehead
Digital Art - Digital Painting/photographic Art
This digital oil painting is my interpretation of a work by Alfred Bricher completed in 1878 (and as with all Bricher's paintings this one is in the public domain). It is not a faithful reproduction. Bricher was one of the more prolific artists associated with White Mountain Art and the Hudson River School and with a painting technique called "luminism." Toward the end of his career, Bricher was considered one of finest maritime artists of his day.
According to Wikipedia, Marblehead is a coastal New England town located in Essex County, Massachusetts. Its population was 19,808 at the 2010 census. It is home to the Marblehead Neck Wildlife Sanctuary, Crocker Park, the Marblehead Lighthouse and Devereux Beach. Archibald Willard's famous painting The Spirit Of '76 currently resides in Abbot Hall. A town with roots in both commercial fishing and yachting, Marblehead is the birthplace of the American Navy and Marine Corps Aviation and a popular yachting destination.

This 1.20 acre park, located off Ocean Avenue on Marblehead Neck, gets its name from the castle-like private home next to the park. Once known as "Great Head", Castle Rock was a lookout for arriving and departing fishing fleets and for pirate and enemy ships, both British and France. It offers spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean with benches, fishing and off-shore sailing.
