Fishing is a popular recreation for those lucky enough to find the time to fish for the “big one.” I don’t particularly like to fish myself, but I have several friends who do enjoy this sport. I found this particular marine life painting an interesting subject to paint.

Artist Comments

“Peggy’s Cove Revisited” is one of two commissioned paintings. An art collector contacted me after seeing a previous painting I had done called “Peggy’s Cove.” Although this painting is the same subject as the first one, there are some noticeable differences between the two, making Peggy’s Cove Revisited an original oil painting and not a reproduction. Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia is a favorite place that holds many memories for this art collector. She commissioned me to do two paintings for her. The second painting is titled “Return To Peggy’s Cove.” This painting is part of the Peggy’s Cove Series.

Artist Comments

This particular painting is a nautical still life. Most people envision a bowl of fruit, a vase of flowers, or a figurine sitting on a table when they think of a still life. However, a still life can be composed of any inanimate object.

When choosing a subject matter for my paintings, sometimes I like to give myself a challenge. I found these fishing boat fenders that were tied to the pillar of a fishing pier very interesting because of all the different textures (wood pier, rusty chains and rubbery boat fenders) present. I thought they would be an interesting challenging trying to paint all that texture. One really does get a sense of texture from the detail in this artwork.

In case you didn’t know, a boat fender is a type of bumper or cushioned buffer used to prevent a boat or other watercraft from bumping into a dock, pier or another boat causing damage to its hull. They are usually constructed from rubber, foam or plastic, and they come in a variety of shapes and sizes depending on what they are being used for.

This isn’t the only time I’ve taken on “texture” as a particular painting assignment for myself. Check out these paintings: Still Life with Tractor Tire and Barn Door with Horse Tack.

Artist Comments

During the summer of 1999, my husband and I sailed his 36 foot sailboat up the ICW (Intracoastal Waterway) from Florida to Virginia. Robert was in the military at the time and was being transferred from Naval Air Station Jacksonville to Naval Station Norfolk. Along the waterway we saw many interesting sites which offered a number of opportunities to take reference photos for future paintings. This is an oil painting from one of the many photos taken on this trip.

The ICW is a 3,000-mile system of inland rivers, channels and canals along the eastern and southeast coast within the United States. This ribbon of navigable water is divided into the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway and the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway. Parts of the waterway are man-made canals while other sections are natural inlets, saltwater rivers, bays and sounds. The ICW runs along the east coast from Boston, MA going south along the Atlantic Seaboard and around the southern tip of Florida, then following the Gulf Coast to Brownsville, TX. The purpose of the waterway was to provide a safe and navigable water route that could be traveled by both light-weight commercial barges and personal pleasure crafts in order to avoid many of the hazards of travel on the open sea.

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.

Some Interesting Facts About Currituck Beach Lighthouse

    • Year beacon first lit: 1875
    • Number of steps: 220
    • Height to focal plane of lens: 158 feet
    • Height to top of roof: 162 feet
    • Number of bricks: approximately one million
    • Thickness of wall at base: 5 feet 8 inches
    • Thickness of wall at parapet: 3 feet
    • Position: 34 miles south of the Cape Henry Lighthouse (VA)
    • 32 1/2 miles north-northwest of Bodie Island Lighthouse
    • Coast Survey Chart: 36° 22’36” N latitude, 75° 49’51” W longitude

Artist Comments

Artists will often use reference photos to compose their paintings from. Sometimes they will create their composition from only one photo and at other times several photos are used. There’s nothing wrong with painting from photos, artist do it all the time.

This still life painting is a combination of several such reference  photographs which depicted the nautical elements I wanted to portray in my painting. One of those elements was coral. Coral can be found in so many different shapes, sizes and colors. Although, pinks and reds are the most common colors. They are tiny sea creatures which live in the ocean in large colonies that look like plants. They will live all of their adult lives in one place and prefer the places where the water is warmer. When they die their skeletons form a hard stony substance also called coral. Large deposits of coral often accumulate to form reefs or islands.

I had never used coral in a painting before, so as I considered painting a still life with a nautical theme, I felt it would be very interesting to include some coral in this one. I’m happy with the way it turned out and I especially like the nautical lantern to finish out this marine themed still life.

SOLD: This seaside painting sold to a private art collector in California and no longer available, however, if you would like a similar one of your own, contact us. For more information on how to commission a painting: Art Commissions Info.

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.

Other Paintings of Oregon

I no longer live in the Pacific Northwest, however, Oregon continues to be a source of inspiration for me. Below are two more paintings of Oregon.

Artist Comments

Clownfish are a salt water fish. They are also called Anemonefish because they are often found living among the sea anemone. They are colorful little sea creatures that come in a variety of colors: yellow, orange, or a reddish or blackish color, and many have three white bars or patches of white depending on the species. Clown Anemonefish prefer the warmer waters of the Indian and Pacific oceans, as well as  the Great Barrier Reef and the Red Sea. They are not found in the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean, or Mediterranean Sea.

My painting makes this tiny fish look much larger than it really is, as they only grow to between 3 and 7 inches in length. I was visiting a pet shop with my kids one day where some of these where fish on display. I was simply amazed at how tiny these wondrous sea creatures actually are!

Some Interesting Facts About Clownfish

    • All Clownfish are born male. Later after maturity, some will become female.
    • They typically eat algae, zooplankton, worms and small crustaceans.
    • Clownfish live in a “symbiotic” relationship with their host anemones.
    • They are extremely aggressive fish and will defend their territory and the sea anemone that they live in.
    • The Clownfish will live up to 5 years in captivity and up to 10 years in the wild.

More information and photos of Clown Fish can be found here.

Artist Comments

This ocean wave painting is one of my early paintings just starting out as a professional artist. It shows the Oregon Coast looking south from the “Sea Lion Caves” towards Cox Rock. Cox Rock is one of thousands of islands which sits off the Oregon Coast. It is nearby to Sea Lion Point and Heceta Head.

The Sea Lion Caves is America’s largest sea cave and is located about midway on Oregon’s 400 miles of shoreline. It can reach from the Pacific Coast Scenic Byway U.S. Highway 101. For more information about the Sea Lion Caves visit their website.

There isn’t a lot of information about Cox Rock. What I have learned is it is an island off the Oregon Coast and which isn’t easily accessible if you want to explore it and it’s hard to find. Visitors to the island will probably want to use their GPS to guide them there. Coordinates are below.

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.

Facts About Cox Rock, Oregon

    • Coordinates: 44.1109544°N, -124.1262313°W
    • Approx. Elevation: 75 feet (23 meters)
    • USGS Topo Map Quad: Mercer Lake
