John, this work of art is so beautiful, that not framing it and hanging it, would be a shame. Breathtaking in its beauty from the depth, the beauty of the land, the way the red roof of the lighthouse stands out, and one gorgeous sky. This is Grand Prize Winning work that words really don't do it justice. Exceptional in its beauty John. #1704349
