"A Beacon of Life"

The lighthouse stands a lonely vigil on the rugged coastline, beaming its light outward to alert us of impending danger and also to guide us home. We should all be so blessed to have a light like that in our daily lives to warn us and lead us through the many storms of life, even when the the waters are calm and the skies are a brilliant array of colors and all seems right with the world.

(This picture of Heceta Head Lighthouse on the Oregon coast
was done using an ink wash and pastel crayons. Below is the
original photograph that served as the inspiration for the drawing.)
