Revision #3 of my lighthouse painting for Jim, my brother-in-law, was a soothing project for this snowy, wintry day in Boston. Realizing I feel more fulfilled when I have an emotional attachment to my subject, I decided to pursue a true lighthouse rather than making one up.
I remembered visiting Highland Lighthouse in Truro at the tip of Cape Cod (near Provincetown) this summer. The beach is gorgeous and the lighthouse memorable. Now Jim will have a real lighthouse to look at!
