Peggy’s Cove is one of the numerous small fishing communities located on the eastern shores of St. Margarets Bay in Nova Scotia. This location is also famous for the Peggy’s Point Lighthouse (established 1868). Each year many artists and photographers flock to this location to capture its beauty in their creative works. It is also a favorite tourist destination for many vacationers.
The Peggy’s Cove Series didn’t start out to be a series. I did my first painting of this series in 2005 while living on the east coast in the Norfolk VA area. I loved the way the bright red house stood out in contrast to the water and landscape around it, so I decided to do a painting of this famous Nova Scotia cove. Two years later the painting sold to a doctor living in Maine. Shortly after the sale a collector from Louisiana commissioned me to do two more paintings of the cove for her. I love this location in Canada and plan on more paintings to add to this series in the near future.
A lot of artists have painted this famous cove and it’s easy to see why. You may have noticed that two of the painting are very similar. They are of the same viewpoint, however, since I strive to not create two identical paintings I did paint some differences between the two.

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: 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: 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 oceanview 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.
Although I no longer live in the Pacific Northwest, Oregon continues to be a source of inspiration for me. Below are two more paintings of Oregon.
Size: 9″ x 12″ Support: Canvas panel board Description: An early artwork by the artist depicting the Oregon coastline. This painting is owned by the artist’s daughter and is part of a private collection in Texas.

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.

I used to live in Oregon and have found it to be one of the most beautiful places on earth to live and paint. I’ve painted several paintings of Oregon scenery, some of which are listed below.
