Artist Comments

The beautiful Yaquina Head Lighthouse (pronounced “ya-queen-eh” by locals) is located on the Oregon coast just north of Newport and was built in 1872-73. The lighthouse is named after an almost-extinct American Indian Tribe of the same name.

This painting has almost a “worm’s-eye-view” of the famous Yaquina Head Lighthouse as the viewer looks up at it. I thought that was an interesting angle. At first, I hesitated to paint the lighthouse since I wasn’t sure I could get the angle right. However, I’m glad to have overcome my hesitation and decided to paint the beautiful lighthouse anyway. I love how it turned out.

Heceta Head Lighthouse

Heceta Head Lighthouse painting
© Copyright 2000 – Present

Size: 16″ x 12″
Support: Stretched canvas
Description: A depiction of a famous Oregon coast lighthouse.

SOLD: This seaside painting was sold to a private art collector in California and is no longer available.

Artist Comments

I find Oregon to be one of the most beautiful places in America. Having lived there for several 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 the 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.

I have been painting watercolor for 20 years now, but am always interested in the principles of design and was thrilled to see how much info. you are offering freely, as your father gave freely to you of his life. I especially love your painting of Heceta Head Lighthouse as I live just 15 min. down the road from there. You have captured it beautifully. I have put it in as one of my screen savers, so I can see it every day. Thank you for blessing the world with your gift.” — Mae P., Florence OR

“Often when I have my morning coffee I will search the net for artists. I oil paint. I was in Oregon last summer, your pictures of the Oregon coast by the sea lions is the best I have seen of that view. Your Heceta Head Lighthouse is just beautiful. I painted the coast picture also. You are an inspiration to me.” — Patricia B., Pontiac MI

Oregon Coast South of the Sea Lion Caves

Oregon coast painting
© Copyright 1997 – Present

Size: 9″ x 12″
Support: Canvas panel
Description: A depiction of the Oregon coastline looking south from the Sea Lion Caves. This painting is composed on a quality canvas panel and does require a frame before it is displayed.

SOLD: This painting is owned by the artist’s daughter and is part of a private collection.

Artist Comments

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

The Sea Lion Caves is America’s largest sea cave and is located 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. I have learned that it is an island off the Oregon Coast and 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.
