Heading south on 101, thirteen miles north of Florence is the iconic Heceta Head Lighthouse, one of the most photographed on the Oregon Coast. “It is named after the Spanish explorer Bruno de Heceta, who explored the Pacific Northwest during the late 18th century…Built in 1894, the 56-foot tall lighthouse shines a beam visible for 21 nautical miles, making it the strongest light on the Oregon Coast (Wikipedia).” Perched atop 1,000-foot-high Heceta Head, the lighthouse has a dramatic view of the vast Pacific. I tried to capture the massive and powerful ocean and its surging waters against the sunlit rock outcropping, and diminutive but bold lighthouse, with its houses for the lighthouse keeper and assistant which is now a Bed and Breakfast Inn.

I’m selling the paintings in the Oregon Coast Collection at a very low price (about 1/2 of what I would sell them in my brick and mortar gallery) because I’m passionate about keeping original art (not prints!) affordable and raising up a new generation of art patrons and collectors. If you would like to check out the details of this painting go to my Online Gallery here.
