Description: A painting of Yaquina Head Lighthouse as seen from below and looking up. From this artwork, one gets a sense of its height as it towers above the keeper’s quarters with a blue sky overhead, while the warm sun shines upon the column that supports its beacon. This hand-painted artwork is signed by oil painting artist Teresa Bernard.
Yaquina Head Lighthouse is hand-painted on a quality canvas panel board. It will need to be framed before it is can be displayed.
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.
