Artist Comments

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 were living 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 it again. This painting of the Currituck Beach Lighthouse depicts the fun time we had on that trip.

About Currituck Beach Lighthouse

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 contrasts with fellow lighthouses along the North Carolina coast, which are painted in striking black and white. The lighthouse was constructed in 1875 and is still being used today to light the dark stretches of the southern Atlantic coastline. Annually the lighthouse welcomes an average of 185,000 visitors.

Artist Comments

This camelthorn trees painting was a fun one to do. At first, it appears to be a bit surreal, not the art genre that I do. I’m a realist painter, which means I try to paint things as they appear. This composition is a landscape I painted from an actual photograph of the Namib-Naukluft National Park, Africa. It depicts camelthorn trees with a dune rising in the background. The dune is bathed in orange by the effects of a rising sun. The trees are in shadow from another nearby dune. Some believe these trees have been dead for hundreds of years and that their failure to decompose is because the desert is so arid.

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.

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.

Other Paintings of Oregon

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