Serenity is Celestún

Since Pablo has all kinds of paints and materials sitting about, I am automatically drawn to an open craft station.  I love to color, like in coloring books, more than draw, I don't feel I am very good at depth perception and shadowing and stuff.   I took a landscape photo of Celestún that I loved and decided to try a landscape.  This is my attempt at painting a photograph I took.  To me it represents the serenity which is Celestún.  I work best with small things, so I used a 9 1/2" square canvas.

Thanks! As it turns out it will be the book cover for the collection of Memoirs called SURVIVE being published by Coco Harris. I'll post on that later. Glad you liked it.
