At The Beach House

I so enjoy painting these old family photos. The photo I based this painting on was taken during a family vacation to Long Beach Island in New Jersey. We went here several summers with family friends and were right on the ocean and near the boardwalk. I also remember going to the Atlantic City boardwalk and a Miss America pageant was going on at the time.
I'd love to go back someday and see if I can recognize the house where we stayed. But I'm sure a lot has changed though since the 70s.
