Description

I first discovered them in the 1990’s when they were in much decay but was able to check on their renovation in the late 90’s each time I exhibited at the prestigious Coconut Grove Art Festival. I have taken photos of this area for years but haven’t featured it in my painting until now. The Avalon Hotel has a lobby/sidewalk restaurant with several spaces reserved for valet parking. The owner of the Porsche 256 is having dinner and most likely drinks in the bar or one of the others along Ocean Drive. The beach is about 50 yards east of these hotels, and you can almost hear the strains of the 1950’s Jackie Gleason Orchestra.
