“Lighthouse Point” is the title of this 42 by 60 by 2” oil on canvas piece by artist Ron Cooper. It is one of his large paintings hanging in the Seed of Life Cafe in downtown Mount Shasta, which will be open for the Friday Art Walk May 25 from 4 to 8 p.m. Cooper says he “works to create large scale dreamscapes in a style often described as ‘magical realism.’”
