Cape Henry Lighthouses, Ft. Story, VA- plein air at the beach!



8"x10" oil on Belgian linen mounted on archival board

“We are told to let our light shine, and if it does, we won't need to tell anybody it does. Lighthouses don't fire cannons to call attention to their shining- they just shine.”
- Dwight L. Moody


I just got back home last night after a wonderful week delivering paintings to my gallery in Norfolk, VA. The entire trip was delightful, and high-lighted by getting together with friends for some painting, eating, talking....(repeat several times). I had the chance to meet up with fellow painters Barbara Mastaglio and Scott London early Wednesday morning to head over to Fort Story to the lighthouses. I used to live close by before we moved to CT, so this was a real treat for me! It was a bit blowy in the morning, I really had to hold on to my easel with one hand, paint with the other. But what a treat to be back in the warm sunshine...at last, warmed to the bones! It was a gorgeous day and exactly what I needed!

Thanks Kelley! I'm surprised I didn't have any sand in the painting...but I sure did in my back-pack!
