Portland Headlight is one of the most photographed lighthouses in the United States. It certainly sits on a beautiful spot guarding the entrance to Casco Bay. This is an up close and personal view of it and emphasizes the white-washed walls. This is done with quality oil paints on linen and may be hung without a frame.

There's a compulsion to interpret visual moments for this painter. The hope is that a special moment can somehow be preserved forever. I love working in oil paints. They are challenging and forgiving at the same time. Color, texture and light are the main components that I try to give center stage. And then sometimes I just paint a simple painting without much thought at all. It's all creative process.
