Holiday "Paradise Found" Design Variation

Posted on: November 15th, 2018

This design variation is perfect for anyone who is longing for a winter get-away! This design was given holiday flair by swapping out the sunset colors and adding lights and a snowman (made of sand of course). This design variation would be perfect for a vacation-themed painting party this winter complete with floral leis and fruity drinks.
