Here's what Jenny has to say about it:
"This is my rendering of the manager, Erick, as a merman. I recently came across a photo of this and remembered how much I liked painting it. The decorative border contains references to hops and grapes, and he is drinking beer, and holding the paddle that brewers use to do something esoteric and wet. The pose is a classic one used by countless sculptors and painters through the ages."
Jenny's palette is ocean-based, with its sea-greens and sky-blues, paired with a fluid, kelp-like border. And you can just make out the subtle Lighthouse logo on the beer mug.
Erick is the longtime manager of this great seaside spot on the central Oregon coast, having signed on as manager in May 1999. Sadly, he is not an actual merman.
