Yaquina Bay Lighthouse, from original pen & ink by Wayne Bricco, Acrewood Art

Yaquina Bay Lighthouse
Newport, Oregon

For you are the fountain of life, the light by which we see.
Psalm 36:9 NLT

Yaquina Bay was the next lighthouse on my list going up the Oregon Coast. (Actually I skipped it to do Yaquina Head for a special occasion and had to go back and catch up.)

I really enjoyed drawing this lighthouse. I didn't realize it had so much gingerbread around the door and other places until I started drawing. When I enlarged my photographs to get the detail, there it was.

This is one of the few lighthouses seen mainly from the ocean side, which is the point I like to see them from. It is also only the second lighthouse I have drawn that has the lantern on top of the house. The other was Battery Point Lighthouse in Crescent City, CA.
