On February 16, 2016 we spent some time on Jekyll Island, Georgia photographing anything of interest to us as we ventured around the island. This posted image is a copy of an original photograph we took on that day. However, being I, Bill, have become fascinated with different digital painting techniques, as of late, I decided to try using a digital "oil" brush on the copy, which, after some time, yielded what you see. The scene you see in the painting is a section of Jekyll Island which we found for the first time on that February day. In the past we always visited the beach area referred to as "Driftwood Beach" and it happened to be on the opposite side of the island if my memory and directions serve me correctly. Regardless, we found this beach area very much to our liking and less occupied with people compared to Driftwood Beach. Now for a little Jekyll Island history.
From the early Native Americans to guests from around the world, the story of the island has been captivating the imaginations of explorers for generations.
In 1733, General James Oglethorpe named Jekyll Island in honor of Sir Joseph Jekyll, his friend and financier from England. In the late 1800s, Jekyll Island became an exclusive hunting club for families with names like Rockefeller, Morgan, Vanderbilt, Pulitzer, and Baker.
The once private retreat is now part of The Jekyll Island Club National Historic Landmark District, one of the largest preservation projects in the southeast.
In 1947, the Governor and the Georgia state legislature established Jekyll Island as a State Park. Today, the island is a special sanctuary for each of us and the Jekyll Island Authority is proud to share our islands history.
