Arthur Beaumont’s paintings

After watching the Arthur Beaumont Sketches in the USS SAINT PAUL’S Associations web site, a cherished memory came to my mind: Arthur Beaumont’s wife, Mrs. Beaumont, was the girl’s vice-principal of Stevenson Jr. High School in East Los Angeles where I attended, during 1946-47. She was a very elegant lady and well liked. We had the pleasure of seeing her husband’s paintings that she brought to school for all to appreciate. Years later, my husband and I both had the pleasure of viewing them together at the Marine Museum in San Pedro, California. It gave me much satisfaction to realize that I had, somewhat, touched base with this marvelous artist.
