Kitty Hawk Lifesaving Station and Bar&Grill (SOLD)

This place was originally built as a lifesaving station. The Wright Brothers stayed in this building when they came to Outer Banks to test their theories of flight. Some time later it was decided that Kitty Hawk  really didn't need a lifesaving station, and they would drop the whole business of saving lives. Someone else decided it to keep up the good work, and did a lot of additions and it has been saving lives like mine regularly, and pretty often too. They serve a fine rum and tonic.
AKA: The Black Pelican.
Oil on Canvas 12"X24"
This painting is sold.

This is a gorgeous painting, Rick. One of my favorites of your's, indeed! Great job on capturing those shadows too; they grabbed me even in the thumbnail.

It's been a while and I had to go all the way back to your "Red Striped Shutters" to get caught up. I think my favorites are the yellow flat top cottage and this last one of the old life saving station but of course your crab paintings are always super! Great work still, keep trucking along....
