Plum Island Light by Jim Mickelson

Posted in New Artwork Available, Ongoing events of interest, Works by Jim Mickelson with tags , , , , on November 20, 2012 by Richard Summers

We recently came into possession of a painting by Jim Mickelson that appears to be of the Plum Island Lighthouse. The owner told us he bought it from Jim in the early to mid-1980’s. He asked us to help find a buyer, and he’s hoping for a quick sale.


This would be a great way to brighten up your holidays. It is 20 x 24, unframed. It displays Jim’s characteristic brushwork, and is signed in the lower right corner.                                       Contact us for pricing and other questions.

Unearthed in an attic

Another painting of Jim’s was recently found along with two others in an attic during an estate cleanout. It depicts the inner harbor in Rockport with the original Motif #1 in the center background.
It is 18×24, oil on board, signed and although undated, we estimate it to have been painted in the late 50’s or early 60’s when Jim had his gallery there, and seems to have developed a relationship with the family. Three pieces were found in the estate, one was dated 1961.
