Painting ways

I needed another gift... so, out came my paints and a 6 x 6 canvas. My friend loves the nautical
theme and I decided to paint a simple folksy nautical Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket kind of painting 

I have a lot more detail to put in the picture. I painted the sides to continue the theme of the picture. It is a wrap around "fat" canvas.
So in other words, the houses, land and sea are extended on the sides of the canvas.

Have a great week!


  1. It's cute! I think that handmade gifts are the best! I am going to try to do more of that next year. This year I stuck to cookies, chex mix, and apron, and some embroidery. You would be proud!

    1. Hi Gina,

      I am proud of you lol! Cookies are the best gift, any food for that matter lol!
      I hope to start making things sooner next year :)

  2. That's really fun! Making our own gifts really means we get to customize...this is a good example of that.

  3. Hi Deb,

    I think of the person I making the gift for while I am making it and I do try to add little things that might mean something to the recipient. Thank you.
