Swallowtail Surf

My most popular print has been "Swallowtail Surf".  This is a print of my painting of Swallowtail Lighthouse at the northeast end of Grand Manan Island, as seen along the rocky shore to the north of the lighthouse.

 Perhaps the most striking part of the painting is surf in the foreground, swirling and crashing on the rocks.  I wanted for the viewer to almost smell the saltwater tang in the surf as it reaches up the rocky shore and flows back

This is a painting that I really enjoyed doing, even though it was many years ago.
