Thanks all and you're right it shouldn't be central but it was a photo I found off the internet. I should of moved it off center though.

Your painting made me think of many things. A painting that makes you think or reflect is why there is paint on the artist's brush (or stylus).

There is nothing I like better to see from afar a dark storm approaching and it's arrival with fury.

Your great intensity in the sky and strong lighthouse standing as a bastion to uncertainty, marks the way for ships at sea altruistically.

I wish I tended a lighthouse on a rocky prominence somewhere in Maine where storms after storms come ashore, and the winds came ashore at 35 knots. I'd never tire of that. I would wear thick wool turtleneck sweaters, fowl weather gear and pretend to smoke a pipe.

Your painting made me think of many things.

Thanks to all for the nice comments and P. D. lol about the pipe. :)
I love the Oregon Coast and plan to move there some day. This is The Yaquina Lighthouse in Newport Oregon. I love those northwest storms! Thanks again for all the kind comments.
