Chesapeake Bay Guardian at Sunrise - Original Oil Painting of the Historic Hooper Strait Lighthouse in Chesapeake Bay - Living Room Art

”Chesapeake Bay Guardian” | 11" X 14" | Oil painting on canvas panel

Last year I was one of the participating artists at Plein Air Easton, one of the best plein air events in the U.S. The organizers of the event do an amazing job of getting the artists access to many beautiful painting locations. The Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, Maryland is one of those spots. With many views to choose from and a spectacular sunrise, it's a popular place to paint.

While I was there scouting painting spots I snapped this photo of the Historic Hooper Strait Lighthouse at dawn that is part of the museum. Strangely, I ended up painting in a different spot that morning, only taking note of this beautiful view while looking at photos at home.

This is a studio painting that I did to get warmed up for Plein Air Easton 2014! in July. I am looking forward to returning this year and discovering new views to paint!

Bonjour,

Je comprends votre émerveillement à peindre en un tel lieu...
Je rentre tout juste de l'île Ouessant où j'ai été éblouie par les nombreux phares... Ils ont tous leur histoire. Ils en imprègnent les lieux qui deviennent fascinants.

La peinture que vous nous montrez est magnifique et est animée par la magie qui opère. J'aime les couleurs avec toutes ses nuances.
Je vous souhaite de profiter à nouveau de moments intenses pour ne nouvelles peintures.


Gros bisous ♡
