Ocean Grove summer tents by Martha Kelly. 


From time to time we show the work of artists–painters—who love to portray the beautiful town of Ocean Grove. One time, painter Diane Hutchinson used one of my photographs to re-create a scene inside Nagle’s (see the links below.) That was a great thrill for me because her work is first rate.

Now we have heard from Martha Kelly, an artist from Point Pleasant, who used a tent photo of mine for the acrylic on canvas shown above. This is what Martha has to say about this painting:


“I love your photos. When I saw this one I had to paint it. I studied art in college but never pursued it as a profession. Recently I began to paint more because that is what I truly love. I’m sure you know as you get older what is most important becomes clearer. I paint in acrylics on canvas, usually in the 8×10 to 16×20 range. I have shown in an art gallery in Westfield.

“I live in Pt. Pleasant, but my family and I love Ocean Grove. We love the beach and strolling around town.


We thank Martha for sharing her beautiful painting with us.
