I've always been a lover of lighthouses, with their message of hope and comfort. To make this picture, I stamped the lighthouse image twice on white card stock: once in black and again in blue. I colored the image on the black picture with watercolor pencils, cut out the foreground (lighthouse and beach), and glued it over the blue picture after coloring in the sky with a watercolor pencil.
