I bought five of these coasters, all with a boat/shore theme. We just LOVE them! Not only are they beautiful on the furniture, they are a great size - much bigger than the average coaster I've ever had. Alan's work is truly outstanding. I agree with another reviewer who said it's easy to take the coast for granted when you live here. This art is a wonderful daily reminder of how blessed we are to live in such a beautiful place. Buy some - you won't regret it.
