BY THE SEA GALLERY

I love being at the beach.  To me it’s an artists paradise of scenery.  Many of my Painted Photography and Watercolor pieces are created from images of the seashore.  Enjoy this gallery of images of different scenes down by the sea. These scenes are done in my “paintography technique” looking to create colorful, vibrant and fun art.

THE OLE SUNSET BEACH BRIDGE

A colorful scene of the old Sunset Beach Swing Bridge.  Having been replaced with a modern bridge a few years ago, it’s still a symbol of Sunset Beach, NC.  I’ve crossed this bridge hundreds of times to get to the beach.  While many saw this bridge as a hindrance to cross the Intracoastal Waterway.  I saw it’s charm, beauty and historic uniqueness as of was one the few remaining on the Eastern seaboard.
