This painting, entitled “You Had To Be There” was inspired by an experience the local artist of wide renown, Ed Hill, had whilst having a picnic dinner with his family at Chaster Beach (Ocean Beach Esplanade). The sun was setting, with the light glittering on the water. Ed Hill took a photo of the scene and began a painting when he went home. He called it “You had to be there”. In other words, if one were not physically present, one would hardly believe the reflection of light on the water. It is a lovely work which resonates with many viewers. The painting has since been sold. Posters of it are available at the gallery.
Art cards by local artists Dean van’t Schip, Jone Pane, Alan Sirulnikoff, Josefa Fritz Barham, Marje N.Umezuki, Jillian Olafson & Linda Frimer are available. (These are blank inside.) Give your friends a pleasant surprise, or take away a little memento of your visit!
