Venice Beach Paintings
I lived and worked in Venice, California for 40 years. from the 1970s until 2017. I learned to paint in a tiny studio on a narrow alleyway nestled snugly between Pacific Avenue and The Grand Canal. Along the way, I watched a sleepy, artsy, edgy seaside community change into something altogether different. Back then Venice wasn't exactly respectable. Today it's a trendy area with pricey homes and more upscale citizens.
