The painting is signed. Hopefully that means this painting of our son sailing "STILLWATER" in the Gulf of Mexico is finished. It's so difficult knowing when to stop and say, "That's it...that's all I can do". Actually...with the ropes, maybe a few more strokes? Will give it a few weeks and look with a fresh eye. This one is for us. It's going to live on our wall. Ed is a wonderful young son, husband and father. We are so proud of him and I never tire of painting him and his family.
