My mother paints

My mother is an accomplished painter and her
most recent painting is this one. We call it :
"het huwelijksbootje" (the wedding ship).
There is a saying in dutch "in het huwelijksbootje
stappen", which translates literally into "getting
into the wedding ship". This saying says
something about how people might look at
getting married : they might be scared because
of the rocky ride the ship might experience in the
future. Anyway, my mother painted this and my
parents used a photograph of it on the front of
the invitations they made for their 40th wedding
anniversary celebrations.
