Beachgrass at Point Wilson Lighthouse


This beach is loosing sand in winter storms. Thought I’d better paint it before it’s completely gone. Point Wilson Light is the dividing line between Puget Sound and the Straits of Juan deFuca – a big deal to boaters. The Indians disliked rounding this point so much they instead opted to drag their huge canoes overland through what is now Port Townsend. But I love it here on this point, with wild waves and kelp beds, sandy beaches (rare for this area) and lots of wildlife. Prints are available, and as of April 2008, so is the original painting.
