Greeting Cards for Boat Enthusiasts

Sometimes it can be hard to find suitable greeting cards for men but often a painting or photograph of a boat or boats will fit the bill. Most of my boat greeting cards are from paintings in soft pastel  and are available from my Greeting Card Universe store.

These two are little pleasure boats at Llangorse Lake in the Brecon Beacons, the largest natural lake in South Wales -

                       

And this one is of a traditional fishing boat on a beach in the Algarve, Portugal -


Here are two soft pastel landscape paintings, but both include boats. On the left is the towpath of the Brecon and Monmouth Canal, near Goytre Wharf in Monmouthshire, South-east Wales. On the right is Viking Bay, Broadstairs, Kent, on a sunny evening -

                           

And this one is a typical coastal scene from North Norfolk, at Burnham Overy Staithe -


Back to Lake Llangorse for this photograph, with the Brecon Beacons clearly visible in the background -


No identifiable place for these collage boats, but they were obviously influenced by my frequent visits to Cowes Regatta as I was growing up in the Isle of Wight -


Take a closer look at any of these cards by clicking on the images. They are all left blank inside so that you can add your own message.

If you would like to purchase a print of one of these 'boat' greeting cards, many of them are available in my Zazzle Store and several of boats in Gloucester Docks as well.

Thanks, Carole - I love painting them! (It comes from growing up around them, I suppose.)

I love that towpath painting, Judy! Wonderful colors!
