Pleasure Cruisin’ in Thailand

Pleasure Cruisin’ in Thailand – 4″ x 6″ Watercolor and Sharpie

I painted this from another photo by Dewi at WetCanvas.    Doesn’t that look like fun?  Since the Illustration Friday word was “Kernel”, I actually thought about painting both of these boats yellow and naming the big boat “Cob” and the little boat “Kernel”, but ended up not doing it.  Just the fact that I thought about it makes me twisted enough.  he he 😀

About Vincent Lombardi

American football coach Vincent Lombardi is famed for turning the Green Bay Packers from a losing team to two-time Super Bowl champions. He was born in 1913 in Brooklyn. He initially wanted to be a priest, but changed his mind after he became the star fullback on his high school team. When he began coaching the Packers, he set up intensive training camps and demanded absolute dedication but promised them the championship. The NFL named him “Man of the Decade” in the 1960’s. He died in 1970.

    Cute little boat! I always like your little vehicles of one kind or another with their little details. Cute little buildings, too. So nice! So someone is interested in your triptych, wooo! What will you do for the next one?
