Retirement in the sun

A superb painting with excellent detail.

Excellent painting Alix .

Dixie and Stephen, thank you. A complete invention for the background!

Very nice. Love the shadows.

This is indeed a vibrant painting Alix and so good that I want to go there right now! Well done.

A brilliant and very detailed painting Alix. I wish I was on that beach!

Spencer, thank you. Sadly the beach is my invention but I'm glad it created a feeling of longing to be there.

Vicki, thank you so much for your comment. Glad it hit the spot.

Three days of sun in Lisbon this month, a place so wonderfully vibrant for both young and old, prompted the title of this painting.
