"Browns Point Lighthouse" by Carol Thompson

"On Commencement Bay in Tacoma, Washington, stands this diminutive light, in service since 1887. It is located in a lovely neighborhood park; a great place for a family picnic. Oscar Brown was the first lighthouse keeper and his decendants still live in the keeper's quarters on the grounds."

Artist comment:  "Brown's Point Light on Puget Sound near Tacoma is a vital aid to navigation for marine traffic.  For this painting, I used oil on canvas.  I began with a quick sketch of the subject.  To assure accuracy, I researched the lighthouse and took multiple photographs.  I referred to this material during the drawing and painting process.  When the background was completed, I painted the structure and setting, finishing with the light, the antennas, and the fence."
