"Pigeon Point Lighthouse" by Carol Thompson

Pigeon Point Lighthuse

"Boasting a fine First-Order Fresnel lens in a 115 foot masonry tower, Pigeon Point shares tallest California Lighthouse honors with Point Arena. Now fully automated, this majestic lighthouse can be seen for many miles by travellers on the Coast Highway near Half Moon Bay, California."

Artist comment:  "I love tall lighthouses.  Because this stretch of the Pacific coast is relatively low-lying, there was a need for a tall tower to shine the light far out to sea.  This oil on canvas was a pleasure to paint.  I carefully sketched the composition, then rendered the sky and background sea.  When that was dry, I painted the lighthouse and out buildings, finishing with the dark green tree for accent"
