"Located in Westport, Washington, this octagonal
shaped lighthouse is locally known as the 'Westport Light'. It rises 107
feet to guide vessels by day and night. Since 1897 its fog signal, Fresnel
lens light, and more recently, radio beacon, serve to aid deep sea cargo
ships as well as commercial and sports fishermen."
Artist comment: "This is a medium sized painting done with oil on canvas. I visited the Westport light on a summer day on Washington's Coast. Built in 1897, a fresnel lens tops an octagon tower, shining far out to sea with comforting power. The gleaming white beacon guides marine traffic by day and by night. One hundred plus feet from its base to its top, the light has served long to warn many a ship. Its unusual shape is a well known guide post to indicate location off the Washington coast, so commercial ships and sportsman alike can see that, where they are is just where they should be"
