Rick. I do like it! However, I would like to see some sort of promontory like some jagged rocks. Otherwise it's a lighthouse protecting ships from a lighthouse.:)

Thank you all very much for the nice comments..
Jibes, you mean you can't see the rocks?? I see them just as they are.. Moss covered and perfect.. The waves are just misting them over a bit.. But believe me, they are there..

That light is quite familiar. It seemed I already saw it in another painting (a deją vu?). Anyway palette, texture and the stormy weather are both evocative and delightful!

Yes Caesar, It is the Eddy Stone Light in Devon England.. Constructed in the 1760s.. It has been painted many many times.. I'm sure I didn't do the old girl justice..

What is see here, besides a very accomplished painting, is the fact that Rick trusted his instincts. :)
