Description Acrylic on canvas board. 86 inch original.Completed in 1831, St. Marks Light is the second-oldest light station in Florida. It is located on the east side of the mouth of the St. Marks River, on Apalachee Bay. During the American Civil War, the lighthouse was strategically important as an observation point and was defended by the Confederacy. It was shelled in 1865 by Union forces and had to be completely rebuilt following the war.
Gordon Beck, Anthem, Arizona Member Since May 2008 Artist Statement Thanks for your visit.
I’m a self-taught photographer and artist with an interest in nearly all artistic expressions so I don't pursue any one style or genre.
My portfolio includes a mix of photos, digital artworks, and a number of more traditional acrylics and oils.
I also try to produce bright, cheerful images…I realize art can speak in many voices, but I’ll leave the darker commentary to others. I'm 60+ and feel the best years are still ahead. Faith and family are the most important things in my life, and I wake up every day feeling a sense of excitement about the creative possibilities ahead.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or suggestions. And thanks again for stopping by
