Point Reyes National Seashore
After visiting Point Reyes National Seashore, I painted this rather romanticized view of nature. The painting features a single lighthouse on the edge of a brilliant blue ocean on Point Reyes National Seashore. Small in scale when compared to the vast ocean and open sky, the artifact of human development may appear of little consequence. Yet, the lighthouse very subtly hints at a human history of developing the land and conquering the seas.
