The Lighthouse

A beautiful, VERY busy Monday. I used my painting time today to finish this one, a commisioned illustration for a poster to be used by the Celebrate Recovery group at our church.

The water on this one was fun to do - lots of lost and found edges in this painting. I tried to evoke a feeling of danger and chaos outside, as opposed to the safety and comfort inside the house (built upon the Solid Rock!), indicated by the light pouring out through the windows.

Tomorrow I plan to finish, or at least get close to finishing the portrait of the little boy I showed in Saturday's post.

Sweet dreams, everyone!
