This is one of the paintings I'll be showing at the Barnworks during the Vashon Spring Arts Tour. May 7th & 8th, and May 14th & 15th.
This lighthouse is at the mouth of the Coquille River in Oregon near the town of Bandon. I liked the way the light felt intense and hazy at the same time. All that sunlight and moisture washes the color out and makes everything seem soft and insubstantial. This view was from the sand dunes looking south and west towards the sea. The far hill is on the other side of the Coquille River.
