"Down Near Pismo", pastel by Ralphie Hendrix

When I was a kid living in L.A., occasionally we would take a long drive up to Pismo Beach. Mind you, this is back in the 40's. The little town of Pismo Beach had a gas station, small market and a couple of clam shacks that you could get fresh clams, chowder etc. That's the main reason my dad would take that long drive, fresh clams. The place has sure changed. That whole area is practically all city now. I liked it better when there was just a couple of clam shacks there. This is an 8 X 8 matted and set in a black matt frame 12 X 12. To bid CLICK HERE


  1. You really captured the majesty of the view!

  2. Nice handling of the foreground and detail
