Fire Island View



Yesterday was sunny and breezy...perfect for plein air painting. I went over to Robert Moses State Park to paint the Fire Island Lighthouse. I've painted this several times before and always enjoy it. I decided to do it as a long vertical painting. This is 3 1/2 x 10 and done in watercolors and ink.

This is stunning, Joan, truly. I love lighthouses and have always intended to attempt to paint one. Gorgeous!

Lin - Thanks so much. I don't know if the size will be perfect if I try to frame it. lol

Sherry - Many thanks. I've painted this one a number of times.

Lovely piece, Joan. Your painting should be on the city chamber of commerce postcard. The vertical format works great with the lighthouse.
