Ram's Head Lighthouse

My latest painting is of Ram's Head Lighthouse, which is just outside of Boothbay Harbor, Maine. It was done as a birthday present for my father-in-law. I based the painting on a photo that I took on a trip to Boothbay 2 years ago. My wife and I stayed at a little place called the Tugboat Inn, and as part of our package, we got a free trip on an excursion boat around Boothbay Harbor. The photo was taken as we cruised by the lighthouse. The day was cool and foggy, so I added in the blue sky, the dory, and the seagulls. The painting is 14" x 18" on stretched canvas, and is painted in acrylic.
