An uncle, who lives in Southport, introduced him to the Port City. Walking along the Riverwalk with his family, Beck began to see things in a different way. He started seeing new bodegas and art galleries housed in historic buildings. “It was almost as if you could see the history reflecting on the river,” he explains. “The mixture of old and new seemed poetic to me.” Beck saw colors cast on faces of people and the facades of buildings he walked past. He grew excited and restless to paint.  “There is more richness in the gray tones when you have this type of atmosphere. When you are in the West everything is clearly defined. The atmosphere here blends every-thing together — it gives beauty to the greatness,” he says. 1720 Drysdale Drive • 910-256-6111 • www.landfallrealty.com Summer Stream, 8 x 10 inches, oil on canvas.
