Lovely and nostalgic painting; you have a unique style that is a real pleasure to see! And I love the canvas texture that you used here; it really is the perfect background for your scene. Thanks for sharing this! :)

My dad was in the Navy in WWII, and I was yet to be born.

But when we first moved to San Diego when I was 7, a big Naval port, he did take me down to an open house on a destroyer like the one he had served. He was not a particularly articulate man, but looking back I could see he was in a way showing me the world with its vistas and horizons.

He used to sing with some humor:

I joined the Navy
to see the world.
What did I see?
I saw the sea. . .

And your pic sort of gets the spirit of all that for me. And I'm now feeling all nostalgic. Thanks for this.

Well painted too. :)
