Christinia's Escape

I finished this painting for my Sister today. I am so glad to do this for her.. she has mentioned this idea several times over the years, but i couldn't get a vision of it. Now i think i am happy with this painting. It is done on an old wood cabinet door, in watery acrylics. The sky and sea colors are called Caymen Blue and Turquoise. I used real sand in the fore and a wood sun cut-out. Sanding produced highlights, and the salt shaker and sail on the boat are left unpainted except for the base coat. I hope she finds it a relaxing oasis for many years to come. Maybe one day She will go to Mexico.
