This painting was inspired by a wonderful photo taken by James Kirkish from TheShutteredImage.com of Cape Disappointment, Long Beach Washington. My wonderful friend Nancy Udy found the photo taken by James Kirkish online and wanted me to paint it for her. I always told her she could have any painting I finished after encouraging me to start painting again. I received permission from the artist in early spring and finished the painting May of 2016, it is now hanging on the wall in my friends office. This painting is not for sale. Please visit TheShutteredImage.com for prints of the original photo.
