Wouldn't you like to visit this cheerful little place?

I actually started this painting at the same time as my "Happy Little Houses" but for some reason I got stuck with this one unlike the other which came about so easily. I just wasn't sure what I wanted out of it. I knew I wanted colorful little houses along the water, but I initially was stuck on them being along a canal of sorts, but I couldn't make it work. I finally decided on how I wanted the houses and just as I was about to glue them down, I realized they looked like they were floating out at sea and I knew that wouldn't work and that they needed to be grounded! The little sailboats were not in the original plan, but I think they really add to the overall painting .
