Port Dalhousie Lighthouse

16"X20" Oil on canvas

This might be finished. I am trying to decide whether to add a seagull but I think that might be a bit too twee. Besides, it might just muck it up completely.

This lighthouse was built in 1879 and is located at the end of the marina pier. Along with the inner lighthouse, which was deactivated in 1988, it was built to aid the navigation of ships into the Welland canal. The light was automated in 1968. 

The first three Welland canals came out here at Port Dalhousie. The current, fourth canal is now located a few miles to the east and enters Lake Ontario at Port Weller.
