Love how vibrant the colors are, and how you get such great detail with just a touch of color here or there. Very nice! (and I understand about "vacations" -- somehow cooking for 8 shouldn't be included in the definition.)

Looks good. I like how the umbrella colors are repeated in the towels.

Vibrant, energetic colors! Your rework on this is good, however I liked the original, too. I'm a sucker for your work - I like it all! :-)

Loved it before, love it even more now! That gorgeous turquoise water really gave it a punch of vitality.

Love this!! I'm longing to get back to my beach series. You did a marvelous job with the amount of detail and your colors are gorgeous.

Reminds me of a Karin Jurick piece - and I mean that as the highest compliment.
Beautiful.

I really like this work. It creates such a mood that I can smell the ocean, feel the air and see the brilliant sunlight.
