Louisbourg Lighthouse in Nova Scotia - oil painting

The site for Louisbourg Lighthouse is the oldest lighthouse site on Nova Scotia which has many, many lighthouses.
I took some liberty in bringing the ocean in the foreground closer to the lighthouse than it actually is to make a more dynamic piece. The lighthouse is painted in detail, but the rocks, grass, trees and water are painted with quick brush strokes in a more impressionist style.
This is a great painting for a lighthouse lover! Check my Etsy shop to see if it is available at
