Hometown Festival - Finished

Hi Everyone, I just finished the painting. I think it’s is an interesting composition full of vibrant color and I enjoyed taking a break from the florals and painting this one very much.

This painting is sentimental to me as I am often homesick. It reflects the colorful homes and harbours found in our beautiful Eastern Canada provinces and in the Maine, New England areas. I spent many vacations with my family in these beautiful quarters and there is something so heart warming about the architecture, harbours, the many seaside shops, cafes, and restaurants; and of course the beautiful ocean and all the fishing boats and seagulls. It reminds me of summer and the way it should be. Wishing you all a super Day and beautiful summer vacations where ever you may go!
