Finished … painted this morning, for my Dad. Faulkner’s Island Lighthouse, where we was stationed with the Coast Guard in the 1950’s. Built in 1802, Faulkner’s Island Lighthouse is Connecticut’s second oldest lighthouse tower, and is the only active light station on an island in the state.

  1. Wow! Such a special gift! ❀️
    Love seeing your progress photos! Your shading on the lighthouse is lovely. The staircase looks tricky to paint – how did you paint it?

  3. Wow, I love this one also! I am quite sure your dad will love it! And your mom is so lucky to be receiving that bird! πŸ˜€

    This is giving me a misty Maine feeling. We’ve not been to the beach in CT, only drove through, but I’m wondering if they’re similar. I can almost hear the foghorns. This is very cool, C. And as always, love your color choices.
