Hand drawn using colored pencils.

This resort actually exists on Jekyll Island, Georgia. I did use artist license with it came to the landscaping. The hotel is real but everything else came from my imagination.

Story behind the art: Hidden in the marshes and rivers along the coast of Georgia is a beautiful barrier island that has been suspended in time. To this day Jekyll Island still maintains the natural splendor and charm that first attracted Northern millionaires to her welcoming shores in the late 1800s. A wonderful place to escape to.

Thanks for viewing.

Yes...I like to draw nature and man-made objects. I'm not that great with people or animals yet. Something for me to work on :^)

Thank you. used "artist license" on the foreground. In real-life the foreground was quite boring...so I spiced it up. Thanks for your comments :^)
