Pemaquid Lighthouse

Pemaquid Lighthouse (2000) is one of the few paintings in this show that is done with acrylic.(Pemaquid Point Lighthouse is in Bristol, Maine. I had photographed it during the American Artist expedition in 1994.) Although I often work with acrylics and teach acrylic as well as oil painting in the Community Center, oil is my first love. I find it subtler than acrylic. On the other hand, acrylic is often good for glazing because it always has a certain amount of transparency. The bright colors seemed suitable for this landmark.
