Going To Cape Hatteras and OBX this Summer?

I just had to share this with you! My childhood memories of OBX and some great merchandise from one of my favorite paintings of Hatteras Light.

One of my fondest memories of child hood was camping at the beach. One year, in the 1960’s we traveled all the way down to Cape Hatteras. I will never forget running on the beach at twilight with our dogs. My sister’s dog Toquin loved to run. He would run so far that we couldn’t see him anymore. I was afraid he wouldn’t come back. But dad said “watch he will come back”. That silly dog would return every time. He had a blast. He loved to run! I remember campfires and sing-a-longs, Staying up late when it was cool and sleeping when it was really hot. We were really crowded together on the weekends and stayed so long that we actually had tent neighbors we got to know quite well.

When a friend from down near the Outer Banks approached me about painting a series of Light houses in 2004, I was thrilled to do it.
Let Your Light Shine! These are wonderful designs based on a series of Hatteras Light that I painted in 2004 from photographs my friend had taken. I hope you enjoy these and share them with your friends.
