"Lit in 1887, this red brick lighthouse, at 175 feet tall, is the second tallest tower on the East coast of the United States. It is open to the public and you can climb the 203 steps to see the 3rd order Fresnel lens in the 'lantern' room."
Artist comment: "A trip to Florida to visit friends was an exciting adventure of a lifetime. I live in Washington State, so the journey was my first long flight from one corner of the United States to the other. I was very impressed by the height of this all brick tower. In my studio, when I arrived home, I painted an oil on canvas using my notes and reference photos. This realistic rendering includes the flags and picket fence that make the scene unique."
