Christmas in Newport

Pin It
"Christmas in Newport"
Oil, 6" x 6" on canvas panel.
$200 unframed.

I thought it might make sense to try a boat painting with some lights ... for those of you that haven't seen the Newport Beach Christmas boat parade ... it is really fun and quite festive! So, even though this boat probably does not have enough lights to compete with the other decorated boats in the parade ... you can get the idea here.
And oh yeah ... Happy almost Halloween!

Wowwwwwwwww........those lights seems sparking. Wonderful effect you have created. The reflection of the boat and the colorful lights make a great combination foe this fantastic painting! :)

I love the boat parade! We used to watch it from my husband's grandmother's house up above Balboa in those terraced streets. I miss that.
The composition of this one is striking...it commands attention!

It looks like Christmas. I'd better start my letter to Santa.
