"Beach Deck"
oil on canvas
18x36

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.
