Taking It All In - Makapu'u Lighthouse Oahu

"Taking It All In"
6" x 4" Acrylic on canvas on panel

This painting needs some more work- after I go tomorrow and buy some new smaller brushes !  It is almost there, however.   Makapu'u Lighthouse is on the Windward side or East side of Oahu.  It was built in 1909 and automated in 1974.  There is a 2 mile path to the lighthouse and in the winter months it is an excellent spot to watch Humpback whales. 

The man was really sitting there in a chair when I took the reference photo for this painting.  There needs to be some slight color correction in this work; I will post the image again after tweaking it a bit.
