Cape May Light, which clings to the southernmost tip of New Jersey, is far-famed for its stately height and majestic simplicity of line. To me, it is an emblem of faith and hope, reminding us that we endure life's storms only through the grace of God.
When I began to paint, fog shrouded the lighthouse. I feared that I'd have to paint another day, when suddenly the fog parted. The sky became a vibrant cerulean blue, and sunlight bathed the lighthouse. I tried to capture the exhilaration of that wonderful moment in my painting. I hope that I have succeeded.
