When I saw the source photo, I knew it had tremendous potential. However, the source photo was taken about 25-30 years ago, and the Rowing Club today is not a reddish brown anymore. Today, the building is very dark brown with white trim. I thought about being anachronistic but then figured it's just too recognizable a building so I better update it. Thing is, the reddish brown makes for a better, more colorful composition. So I guess I kind of kept it, though I did update the railings.

Landscape error that is going to drive me crazy is the red and white boat on the LH side: it is pointing the wrong way, out of the painting, though it is like that in the photo. I'll fix that later (Update: fixed, somewhat)

The only message about this painting, if there is one, is this is a place where people have celebrations: they get married, they have anniversary parties, they celebrate life. The clouds look like balloons, the trees look like birthday candles, and the boats and water have all sorts of confetti color in them. It's just happy, that's all.
