"Fire Island Lighthouse" 5x7 oil on panel

I love lighthouses. I shot this photo from the car, that lovely day that my husband and I went to Jones Beach to walk (and escape the City on a Sunday afternoon.) I've gotten a lot of paintings from that one day's photos. I was giving some thought to doing a larger version of this. These little daily paintings are great studies for helping to determine if something warrants a larger piece and all the time and effort that entails. Not sure this one does, but I like it as a 5x7.


  1. You're right about the study use of small paintings. I don't do it enough myself.
    Love that red house.

  2. nice painting Tonya! I love the composition ♥
