Eckener

This beach access in Kitty Hawk was most likely named for this guy.
Dr. Hugo Eckener (10 August 1868 – 14 August 1954)[1][2][3] was the manager of the Luftschiffbau Zeppelin during the inter-war years, and also the commander of the famous Graf Zeppelin for most of its record-setting flights, including the first airship flight around the world, making him the most successful airship commander in history. He was also responsible for the construction of the most successful type of airships of all time. An anti-Nazi who was invited to campaign as a moderate in the German presidential elections,[1][4][5] he was blacklisted by that regime and eventually sidelined.

Maybe this is too much information?
What?
Everybody is wearing them.

Bleriot

 French aviator who in 1909 made the first flight across the English Channel (1872-1936)
I painted on this for what seemed like a long time. I can hardly remember when I wasn't painting on this beach access at the end of Bleriot Street in Kitty Hawk.  Hope I don't go senile.
I think this guy caught a bluefish!

Waiting on Nurishment

I have decided to take on a series. I plan to paint some of the beach accesses along North Carolina Highway 12. I am starting at the north end of Kitty Hawk. This house is just over the dune on the south side of Bieriot Street. I do not think it will be around to see any beach nourishment and the place is not habitable, but it has a lamp in the window on the back side.
Thanks for looking

Bubbles

Picasso said "inspiration likes to find you working in the studio."
To that end I have been grinding away days and days painting things and drawing things that could not hold my interest and showed it.
I think this one has a bit of drama. Bubbles.
Thanks for looking.

The Stinton Ranch Dude, where are the cows? (SOLD)

I must admit to smiling more than once while painting this.
Just don't go there girlfriend.
If you go to the Stinton Ranch looking for cows, well dude, just forget about it. There's no cows in Nag's Head.
