White River Lighthouse


Another painting started while I was plein air painting with friends.  This lighthouse is tucked snugly between the channel on the north, the nearby Lake Michigan shore on the West.  Inside you can stroll through a fine nautical museum, which includes the Fourth Order Fresnel lens originally used at this location.  You  can also climb a beautiful iron staircase into the light tower for a sprawling view of Lake Michigan.and bordering sand dunes.

I painted the lighthouse from across the river and didn't get the tour so next time I will have to visit the museum.
