Christmas in Candy Cane Cove

I'm sure I should get off the Christmas kick and start painting something else, but I just can't help myself! I listed this one on eBay this evening and you can click on the above title to go directly to this auction. You can also click on these photos for a closer view.
Mr. McDonnagal is the lighthouse keeper in this quaint little village. He hands out candy canes to everyone he meets during the month of December and greets them with a "Merry Christmas". He and his family have lived in the light house for 35 years. His father was the previous owner who inherited it from his grandfather. The candy cane tradition has been going on for many years and thus the name "Candy Cane Cove." Children for miles around have always thought that the lighthouse beam was meant to guide Santa and his reindeer to the families of the village.
