Artist Comments

Currituck Beach Lighthouse is located at Whale Head Bay in Corolla, North Carolina on the northern end of the “Outer Banks”. Its distinct unpainted natural red brick appearance is in stark contrast with fellow lighthouses along the North Carolina coast which are painted in striking black and white. Built in 1875, it is still used today to light the dark stretches of the southern Atlantic coastline. Annually the lighthouse welcomes an average of 185,000 visitors and we were among them.

One summer my husband, Robert and I loaded up the kids and headed off for an adventure on the Outer Banks to discover the lighthouses we’d heard so much about. We lived in Virginia at the time while Robert was serving in the military, and was only two hours away from the OBX (Outer Banks). Currituck Lighthouse was our first stop and the favorite of all the lighthouses we visited that fun filled weekend. We were excited to discover that visitors can climb its 220 steps to the top and look at the spectacular view. We’ve been back to this lighthouse several times since that first trip and we always enjoy seeing this it over and over again.

Artist Comments

I find Oregon to be one of the most beautiful places in America. Having lived there for a number of years, “The Beaver State” has inspired numerous paintings of its scenery. Heceta Head Lighthouse is one of those paintings.

This ocean view oil painting is of the historic Heceta Head Lighthouse, built between 1892-1893. Perched high on a bluff approximately 150 feet above the sea, it stands watch over the Oregon coast 2 miles north of the famous Sea Lion Caves. Its beam can be seen for 21 nautical miles making it the strongest light on Oregon’s coastline. Heceta Head Lighthouse is a favorite place for tourists as it is one of the most-visited lighthouses in the United States. The lighthouse offers visitors easy access and an outstanding view of the Oregon coastline and Pacific Ocean.

This painting is one of my earlier works. Unfortunately I don’t have photos of all my earlier works, but this one I did.  I hope you enjoy it.
