A delightful painting - I won it!

Sunny had a give-away in June - and I won!!!!! She is the most amazing painter - be sure and check out all her posts.

The painting that I won is from one of my posts - about sailing ships in the bay. The likeness to my photo is amazing - you can even see the people in the boat (click the painting to enlarge the picture). This painting is 6x6" and so detailed. I am just stunned by Sunny's talent - and I adore my painting. It is sitting on the sideboard in the dining room where everyone can see it.

I didn't tell Don I was getting it and when it came in the mail I showed him and he knew instantly that it was painted from my photo. Thank you Sunny - we love our painting. And we love the fairies dancing on the water!!!!
