"Beach Deck"
oil on canvas

My friend Ted has this place down in Fernald's Cove that is known around here as "the beach deck". Some of the old charm from a bygone era still remains in these parts. I'm actually not opposed to the new glitz and glamor at all, its just that I have a great appreciation for the dying days of the Montecito that I grew up in. It was a fairly normal and humble place in the 60's, 70's and the first half of the 80's. There is a place for sale on the top of this point that I saw listed for over fifty million dollars. Believe me I would buy it if I had that kind of dough kick'n around.
