Jones Beach Island
Jones Beach Island is one of the outer barrier islands off the southern coast of Long Island in the U.S. state of New York. It is named for Major Thomas Jones, who first came to Long Island in 1692, where he proceeded to build the island's first brick house near Massapequa. Jones built a whaling station on Jones Island near the present site of Jones Beach State Park in 1700. Jones Beach Island is sometimes referred to as Oak Beach Island and is the former home of the infamous Oak Beach Inn.
"These are original works of art that I have signed on the front, sealed, dated and represent a Ltd.Edition Series of 20, with Artist AP. These paintings have been printed on Archival quality textured paper including Hahnemühle William Turner, washi style and Kozo paper. The papers have been created from natural fibers like Cotton, Mulberry and Hemp for superb preservation. The ""cloud dragon paper"" ,Kozo Paper and Hahnemühle William Turner,are warm, white, environmentally friendly and acid free. I am passionate about scenic painting and the creative process. My work is influenced by the subtle nuances of light and texture that can be found in nature. I am inspired by the endless movement of water, wind, sunlight, reflections and shadows ....evolving textures …and all that comes with the gorgeous, vibrant colors of nature…particularly the light from the rising and setting sun...."
