"North Head Lighthouse from Benson Beach" Landscape painting by Robin Weiss

"North Head Lighthouse from Benson Beach"  32x48 oil on canvas   Sold
It has been a long delay before posting this work....but worth it!  "North Head Light"  is a studio painting done from a plein air study and photos taken on location at Cape disappointment, on the Long Beach Peninsula, Wa. state.

Peoples Choice Award!
 The painting was selected by juror, Eric Jacobson as part of the Plein Air Washington Artists, Washington State Parks Exhibition at The American Art Co. gallery in Tacoma Wa. It received an honorable mention from the juror and then I was surprised to learn at the end of January that it also received the Peoples Choice Award!  This was especially gratifying for me since it came from many of my peers in the art community.  This show was the culmination of many fun paint outs with the PAWA gang this summer and included many fine studio paintings accompanied by their plein air studies from many members.
You can see the post of my plein air adventure at Cape Dissapointment when I worked on the studies HERE
