This year the National is in Rhode Island. I'd visited Rhode Island 12 years ago and photographed a lighthouse for this very purpose.
An unexpected vacation came up last summer and all of a sudden ... I would have better photos than I'd taken 12 years ago. But, before I give away the entire story .... there is a page dedicated to the painting with reference photos and all the details.
