Artist Comments

The beautiful Yaquina Head Lighthouse (pronounced “ya-queen-eh” by locals) was built in 1872-73 on the Oregon coast just north of Newport. The lighthouse is named after an American Indian tribe of the same name that is now nearly extinct. It is a popular tourist destination, with visitors coming to explore the surrounding beaches and tide pools.

The composition of this painting is almost a “worm’s-eye view” of the famous Yaquina Head Lighthouse. That struck me as an intriguing angle. I was hesitant to paint the lighthouse at first because I wasn’t sure I could get the angle right. However, I’m glad I overcame my apprehension and decided to paint the lovely lighthouse anyway. I love how it turned out.

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.

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 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
