American Beach

A haven when beaches were segregated on Amelia Island, American Beach was established for African Americans and became a very popular destination. Today it's a mix of giant new McMansions and the homes built in the 30's. I started this sitting on the dunes and finished it at home from memory and photos.

  3. This painting struck me right away......the simplicity verges on abstraction while retaining a real sense of place!
