Gull Cottage

                                                    20"x24" Oil on stretched linen

Almost everyone seeing this painting thinks the subject is a lighthouse.  Actually, it was an old farmhouse with an elevated  water tank above it, located in Cayucas, Cal.   It is now a well known gift shop called " Gull Cottage", and is a favorite painting spot.  I believe the ruins at the foot of the cliff are what remain of an early  experimental wave or tidal action power station.  At least, someone told me that, a while back.   Erosion is an enemy here, the owner showed me where she had lost some or her back yard.      Mike
