Jim Wordsworth Currituck Light Watercolor Print
 
Erected in 1874, the Currituck Light stands 158’ high and guides ships that sail close to shore to avoid strong Gulf Stream currents. It is located in the small community of Corolla, which was first known for its waterfowl, wild horses, and fishing lodges.

Jim Wordsworth

North Carolina watercolorist, Jim Wordsworth built his first sailboat when he was fourteen.  From then he was hooked!  Traveling up and down the North Carolina Outer Banks with his family and later with his wife, Mary Lib, Jim saw the changes in the coastal area from rural, duck blinds, to slick tourist attractions.
It is to these things that one is treated to a collection of coastal North Carolina art in watercolors.   One can almost hear the silent sounds of the early Outer Banks, when there were no motels and only a few cottages, none with modern facilities but most with big, gorgeous porches, and laughter that traveled with the wind. 
A self-taught artist, Jim has had one-man shows in Beaufort, Rocky Mount, Chapel Hill, Cary, Wilson, and Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina.
