Hermosa Beach is depicted in the style of vintage postcards. Evans celebrates the city’s centennial and 100 years of beach culture by commemorating its groundbreaking lifeguard service, iconic pier and museum, a female surfing champion from the 1930’s and the quirky environment of surf and sand culture.
“I wanted this painting to look fun, since the beach is definitely that. It is loosely based on vintage postcards and features old fashioned bathing costumes, a historic map and made up postage stamps.”
CYNTHIA EVANS received her Masters of Fine Arts at Claremont Graduate University in Claremont, California. She has exhibited her paintings throughout the West Coast including the Koplin Del Rio Gallery in Los Angeles and the Linda Hodges Gallery in Seattle, Washington.
