Buffalo Lighthouse

The original painting is for sale. The weather was very turbulent when I took the reference photo for this painting. There was a storm brewing over Lake Erie and the winds were cold and strong. It’s a long walk to the lighthouse and I wasn’t sure if the rain would hold out long enough for me to take a few pictures. I beat the storm, but the wind blew my hat off and I chased after so it wouldn’t end up in the lake. The bell buoy at the bottom right is from the 1920’s.
