Bertie Mae’s Place – Pismo Beach

These are special as a history of a small lot at 124 Oceanview Street in Pismo Beach. I have painted it several times – beginning in 1995 and up to this year in June 2017. The story is that she refused to sell her lot during the development of the Sea Venture Hotel. Through the years people told stuff on the sidewalk while I painted. At one time I was told that she and her family farmed in the area, perhaps in the Nipomo vicinity south of Arroyo Grande.
