Light the way with strength

by Beth Bennett

All about the art from the artist.

Picture of the painting Light the Way with Strength by Beth Bennett. It depicts two women in Victorian long dresses . One woman is on a ladder lighting the gas lamppost whilst the other stands by the lamp post with a fire light taller than her . The Painting uses yellow and blue and black on a blue dark background with the moon shining on both sides of the painting
“Nothing can dim the light within” history silenced the beautiful stories of female lamplighters and how they kept everyone safe with their hardwork and determination, I wanted to illustrated two women lighting the way to inspire others to do jobs that are deemed “masculine ” and portray the beauty in strength.
