"St. Marks Lighthouse" - Florida by Connie Tom Luminous Landscapes

St. Marks Lighthouse - Florida 24"h x 20"w Oil Painting by Connie Tom Sold

This painting is a scene from the panhandle town of St. Marks in Florida. In the 1820’s, this town was considered a vital port of entry for the planting and growing regions in Florida and Georgia. Today this small community (population 315) is known for bordering St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge. Pristine coastal marshes, tidal creeks and upland forests give us a look at an unspoiled Florida, where peace and quiet reign. This is a painting of St. Marks Lighthouse, where you can see miles of marsh and sandy beach.

"Though the Lord be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly: but the proud he knoweth afar off. Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies and thy right hand shall save me. The Lord will perfect that which concerneth me; thy mercy, O Lord, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands." ~ Psalm 138:6-8.
