This painting has always been a favorite of mine. My Aunt Peggy painted it back in the 80's. To me, that's not that long ago, but it's already considered vintage! She gifted it to me when I moved into my first apartment. It's definitely a sentimental item, but I also think it's beautiful! I painted the dark frame and mat a few years back and just love it now after it's been chipped a bit through all of our moves. I'll always treasure it.
I cannot wait for some trips to the beach soon! I've been daydreaming about it. . . We used to live right on the water and I do miss it at times.
