Pigeon Point Light House

Hello everyone!  It's been a while since I updated.  More than a month ago I finished my Art Deco Pin-up painting, which is now hanging at Gallery 9 in Los Altos.  Then my wife and I went on vacation to Ecuador.  We returned and I was slow in getting my next creation under way.  Well, here you go....Pigeon Point Light House.  If you are not familiar with this light house it is just north of Santa Cruz maybe 15-20 miles.  My excitement for this painting will be found in the water and waves.  As you can see the lighthouse itself is quite small as well as the peninsula that it sits on.  When I took the photo for this painting the drama of the waves and the different colors in the water is what spoke to me.  Hopefully when I am through it will speak to you as well.  Here's the early progress..
I am facing a couple of real busy weeks ahead where I am not going to be able to do a lot of painting so it will likely be a month or so before I can near completion on this.  Please check back toward the end of June.  Cheers, Mark.
