Assateague Island Lighthouse

8" x 10" Oil on Canvas Panel
There are endless possibilities for paintings here in the Mid-Atlantic region of our vast country. Assateague Island, Chincoteague Wildlife Refuge is especially rich in material and artistic opportunities. This is a close-up view of the lighthouse on the Island. I enjoyed my time there as a child, playing on the beach and now as an adult recording the beauty of this magnificent area and the creatures that inhabit it. My husband and I recently hiked the trail to the foot of the lighthouse and this is my favorite view of it.

One of my favorite childhood books was, "The Chincoteague Pony." I loved it.
Nice painting.
