I'll be painting a few paintings of the St. Augustine lighthouse, but this one is sure to be one of my favorites...
My wife and I visited the Lighthouse museum, and I couldn't help it... I laid on my back at the bottom of the stairs to get a shot with the afternoon sun streaming in through the windows, illuminating the upper area. I really liked the curves and light at the top, almost pulling upward. In my research I found that the tenders of the lighthouses were given the nickname "Wickie" since they were the ones who trimmed the latern wicks. So I figured I could call a painting of the stairs leading to the lamp "Wickie Way". Enjoy.
