San Diego Light house

San Diego Lighthouse
Acrylic on Canvas. 16' x 20"  A very nice little lighthouse to paint.    I really enjoyed painting this one. Photo provided by Matt Pitts.
Matt Pitts: "The Old Point Loma lighthouse was active from 1855 to 1891. The lighthouse is located at the tip of Point Loma on the far side of the San Diego Bay. It was decommissioned due to the fog and low lying clouds that are well known in the area. A newer lighthouse was then located closer to the water on the very tip of Point Loma. It is now part of the Cabrillo National Monument. Point Loma was also used during WW II as a watch point for Pacific defense. The lighthouse and the keepers house are both open for viewing."
