These were painted for my parents for christmas. The Sailboat image was painted for my Dad. He recently sold his boat. It was called the New Dawn. I have a lot of fond memories sailing with him and my brothers on the Great Salt Lake. I thought it would be a fun way to commemorate his boat and the good times we had. The beach painting was for my Mom. She loves the beach. When I visit her in California visiting the beach is something that we always do. I put the images on some coffee mugs and gave them to my parents as Christmas gifts. I enjoyed painting them quite a bit. Thanks for taking a look.
