Highland Lighthouse, Truro, Cape Cod

Highland Lighthouse, Truro, Cape Cod

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!

Since I was little I liked to visualize and create things. Painting with watercolors is what makes me happy now. That, and spending time gardening and reading. I love long walks, biking, and the beach. Cape Cod is where I spend a lot of my leisure time.

    This is so Scottish and reminds me of one of my favourite places of my childhod! Stunning that different parts of the world share visual clues. I have just relaunched dragonshades.com as a website and blog and discovered two of your lovely comments that I missed so replies to these coming up soon. My new blog can’t seem to connect with the Like option only the Coments box, something to do with the new design! I love your work.
