Golden Light at Silver Point

Painters and photographer call it the “golden hour”. It’s the first and last hour of each day when the sun takes on a warm hue because of the additional atmosphere it must travel through to light up whatever it kisses with light. Inspiration is easy with everything bathed in golden light.

An artist could spend a lifetime painting between Silver Point, on the southern end of Cannon Beach, and Ecola Park to the north. I’m thankful I’ve been able to paint elsewhere but I’m even more grateful to call this stretch of paradise, where inspiration happens even when you’re not paying attention, home.

I painted this watercolor looking south toward Silver Point with the two sea stacks reflecting in the calm tidepools. Off in the distance are our two capes. Arch Cape and Cape Falcon. Did I mention inspiration is easy to find on the northern Oregon Coast?
