This lightouse is "loosely" based on the Bass Harbor Lighthouse in Acadia National Park, Maine (yes, artistic liberties were taken – ahem – lol. The size is 11 x 14" acrylic on canvas. Yes, I tried a new medium (Acrylic)… just to see if I liked them. I can't say it's one of my favorite mediums though, and will probably be the last time I use them. I'm rather pleased with the way this one turned out though (excuse the crooked picture)… This is now in the hands of a family member for Christmas and they loved it (or so they said – wink – lol).
