St. Marks Lighthouse

St. Marks lighthouse is one of the most beautiful lighthouses in Florida. This was painted early in the morning and is featured on one of our PBS television series shows. The “S” curve of the beach and sand helps to bring the eye back to the lighthouse which is of course the center of interest. I liked the way the brilliant red, white, and blue colors brought the painting to life. There is lots of subtle texture in the beach sands but not enough to distract from the lighthouse.
