This is my second entry for Leslie Saeta's 'Thirty Paintings in
Thirty Days Challenge 2015'.  For this challenge, I have
decided to do thirty small studies from my trip last September
to Martha's Vineyard.  My hope is that some of these studies
will be worked into larger paintings.

My third painting is of what might be one of the
most beautiful lighthouses I have ever seen, and  behind
the lighthouse and over the hill is an incredible
view of the Cliffs of Aquinnah.
 While we were there we were told that this coming
year the lighthouse will be moved further inland
to save it from ever-increasing erosion of the beaches.

Thank you Joan and Sue - I love this lighthouse. It's very old, and I am glad they are doing whatever they can to preserve it.
