Cape Disappointment Light Station

- by Carol Thompson

This week's theme: The View From Above

When your perch is above the rest of the world, you have a different perspective of the world around you. Seven such vantage points can be found in this week's Art of the Day.


Art: Cape Disappointment Light Station by Artist Carol Thompson

"Sometimes the afternoon clouds glow with the passing of a storm and seem to be lit from within.  High on a windswept cliff, the 'Cape Disappointment' light station is touched by the sunlight that makes the whole scene magically  luminous."

Artist comment:  "Cape Disappointment Light Station and its companion light, North Head Lighthouse, are both visible from the Pacific Ocean off Washington State's southern-most coast.  I have painted each of these beacons in grey, foggy conditions.  This past summer, I visited them again, and the weather was sunny and ideal.  I researched "Cape D" (as it is affectionately known)  from the beach north of the headland.  I decided to do the gouache painting  in an impressionistic style to bring out the feeling of warmth and comfort the lighthouse conveys as the sun sinks in the West, and a blustery night is about to take over."
