Illustration Friday Topic: Sail!

Photobucket

This painting was part of a series that I did a while back, during a point when I was in dire need of a vacation, but lacking funds to actually take a trip. I called the series "Virtual Vacation", and let my imagination take me to some beautiful, exotic places.

Hope you can smell the salt air and feel the cool evening breeze against your face! Don't forget your sunblock tomorrow. It's forecast to be another scorcher!
