Lighthouse on the Beach, Palette Knife Painting

I painted this small alla prima oil painting using a couple of palette knives.  This type of painting is relaxing and good for exercising the creative side.  I planned it as I went and used the knife to blend color and build texture on the canvas.  It gets a bit wetter as the paint layers are added.  The lighthouse was kept simple and I also scratched in some birds.  The canvas is an 8x10 gallery wrap with edges painted for hanging without a frame.
The heat wave is still pounding us here in Texas.  We need rain badly.
