acrylic on masonite


"On the Northeast side of the island there is a lighthouse called Great Point Lighthouse which was first built in 1784. Just before it's collapse from a major storm in late 1984, I spent some time there on a picnic. I had never seen any artist paint from this perspective. The sensuality of the lines of the fence and the base of the lighthouse struck me and I endeavored to highlight that in my painting.”
