The news of the Boardwalk in Long Beach being demolished has gotten me very sentimental. Long Beach is a great strong community. They type of home that is always home no matter how far away you might move away from it. Growing up in Long Beach we all have our memories and stories of our beloved boardwalk. I thought I would share some painting I have done of long beach over the years, some horrible some good all painted/sketched with love. The top painting was one I did in grad school when asked to paint something personal. I saw this as a portrait of our wonderful town. Ironically I gave this painting to my sister as a house-warming present the day before Sandy hit.
