Horton's Point Lighthouse

This lighthouse is located in
Southold, LI. It sits on a bluff
60ft above the L.I.Sound. Its
still an active aid to navigation
and has a little museum inside.
My friend Gene, who now lives in
Georgia, requested a painting of
this lighthouse. I enjoyed painting
this for him. A little bit of Long
Island to take back to Georgia!!

  4. Es un faro muy realista, es una pena que no se vea el mar.

    It's a lighthouse very realistic, but it's a pity one cannot see the sea.

  12. thank you GRAZIANO and SANDY..

    you are both so kind to leave me such a nice comment on this lighthouse. I do enjoy working with oils and it seems like I'm learning a lot as I go. I've bought some "how to" books which are both interesting and helpful.

  26. JOAN, that sounds wonderful, however, I've never done any plein aire paintings. I would be scared to death. There is so many beautiful places on Long Island to paint. Every time I see one of your paintings, I know exactly where you were!
