Lighthouses on the Gulf project

This project began as a response to a request for a painting of Middle Bay Lighthouse. I am now deep into the Eighth District according to the United States Coast Guard Map. History has never been so fun for me, learning about the lighthouses, their keepers and the storms from which they provided a beacon of light for refuge. Middle Bay especially now is prominent in my studio, I have worked on several versions in Oil, Acrylic and watercolor. This adventure in history proves to be a long one, with lots of research and paintings. I recently finished a painting of Pensacola Lighthouse that was sold before I could get it off of my easel. The Lighthouses are available in prints
