Yaquina Head Lighthouse
Yaquina Head Lighthouse 5" x 7"
Located just north of Newport, Oregon the Yaquina Head lighthouse is Oregon's tallest. It serves as a beacon to ocean goers during severe winter storms with winds gusting in excess of 100mph as well as on foggy, calmer days where visibility can get down to zero. This painting shows it on a day when the weather is clearing... My Facebook Page My Website
My passion, which started early in life, is creating paintings of wild animals in their natural habitat. For me the best part of being a professional artist is spending time in the field studying and observing birds and animals. We live in such an amazing world, I just want to soak in as much as possible and share it with others through my paintings.
