The Mighty Sailing Ship Artwork

We found this painting a few months back and was drawn to the colors and grandiouse feel of the sailing ship. I quickly knew I wanted to hang it in the boys room. Although their room needs some work I think that this is a start. We have since painted the frame black and it is currently hanging above their beds. However, we are making some adjustments so no photos just yet!
We also plan to incorporate these old oars in their room that we picked up this past summer. As well as a few other vintage items we have accumulated.

In life we have many oceans and deep waters to cross as we make our journey. At times it is rough and at times it is calm and smoothe sailing. At times the adventure seems lonely and discouraging and at times it feels we have it under control and have the world at our fingertips.

I mentioned some personal change approaching and it is now in motion. For some people this change would be uneventful or rather nonemotional. For me, it is filled with some anxiety, excitement, sadness, and a little more anxiety.

But I can do this.
And
I will do this.

Lastly, we are putting the finishing touches on a beautiful bedroom set. I am anxious for the reveal!

I love the picture, so bold and so beautiful! I can't wait to see where it is hanging and its new frame.

I have been thinking about you with your change, I know you can do it, it will be good in the end and hopefully open some doors for you! :)

Have a wonderful day!

I can see why you were drawn to that picture Melanie. I love old oars! The vignette you have chosen will look great together. Can't wait to see the finished product.

Take care,
