The Light on the Knoll




Artwork Notes:

Commission from recent road trip. One of the more challenging commissions I’ve had in awhile. Mainly because there were incredibly fun lefts peeling over the reefs all morning just down the hill to the right. Left to my own ways I don’t think there is ever a time I’d choose to paint up the hill to lighthouse instead of down the hill to peeling reef surf, but that’s part of the fun of commissioned work: stepping outside of my vision and into another’s.
