I collect ship pictures, so I love the painting. Also, wow, 70 years, cool on so many levels.

70 years of marriage is a voyage which is an artistic moment in and of itself. Most ships our marriages do not sell that long. Congratulations to them and to you for having that is part of your heritage. Thanks for sharing @inertia

That's one incredibly detailed and beautiful painting. Your grandfather is extremely has an amazing talent!

70 years and still going strong is really impressive and kind of gives hope that love can still last. Wish them nothing but health and happiness in everything they do.

this is just awesome.... we lost grandpa 3 years ago, they made it to 65 years.. the kind of thing we might not see anymore.

That is a pretty impressive piece of art for a youngster. They are both looking very healthy!

It is nice to see a person spend so many years next to each other, it is incredible the love they have and it must be an experience full of ups and downs, but always coming out afloat like that beautiful boat that your grandfather made in his youth.

Congratulations to your grandparents, that they continue celebrating many more anniversaries.

Greetings and good evening @inertia. 👋😉
