Catalina Island Casino Mermaid
conic Catalina Island Casino Mermaid originally painted by John Gabriel Beckmann in 1928. Painted originally as a mural on the front of the Casino Building. It was painted many times over the years by people pulling her tail up or adding medusa like hair. In Beckmanns 80's he redid the mural in tile as he originally wanted it to be.
It's a well loved piece of the islands history, and it has been a pleasure to paint it. Oil on canvas 22x36
