Early 20th Century Boardwalk - Beaufort, North Carolina

Painting of the Old Mace Property - August 2014

August 2014 email from Borden Mace: "As part of my self imposed mental therapy, I paint. Today I finally finished painting my version of my grandfather's house on Front Street. Not in the rundown condition as in the Jack Dudley book, I chose to show it years earlier with a young girl on the front porch  and a rowboat  tied  to a stake. I wanted to show the swing on the porch as per the photo but I gave up; I also added two wooden planks and a short walkway that connect to Beaufort's Broadwalk! The pattern of the wind blown trees replicated in the clouds and in the water is the only  redeeming feature. It is not very good. In fact it's horrible. But it is mine."
