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.
