Lighthouse



People who know me know I love lighthouses... the older the better... but this picture almost looks like it could have been painted on a cave wall! Actually my good friend Mary Stebbins Taitt sent me a beautiful work she did of the Lighthouse in Grosse Pointe, Michigan, and I did this detail from it in Picasa, just for fun.

Getting the "old stone" look was the major battle here... I also made versions in several other tones that I may post later.

wow, now that is beautifully done. I love original artwork on canvas or wood...and watercolors. Thanks for sharing!

This is, I'm afraid to admit, Sandi, only electrons in a computer file. It was created entirely from a photo of a wallpaper sample and software and ingenuity. But I still am in full agreement with you...that's exactly the appearance I was striving for! Thank you!

Nicely done derivative art. :-D

Thanks for the credit.

The link could go directly to the actual piece.
