Cabo Raso


A week or two ago, I posted photos of two small studies I did for this painting.  I'm not quite prepared to say this is finished yet, but it's close enough that I can show it to you.

This has been a frustrating project, just because it's been very hard to find time to work on it lately.  And although I had no time to paint, this image wouldn't leave me alone, so I found myself dreaming about it several times.  The lighthouse, by the way, is one in the series that runs from Lisbon out the mouth of the Tagus to the Atlantic Ocean.  They dot the coast here, and even though there are many of them and they're often quite close to each other, no two are even remotely alike.
