Work in Progress ;Turn of the Century Beach Badges

My Family Tree stretches back three generations on both my mother and father's side in the cities of Margate and Ventnor. These are beach badges lying on top of a nautical chart showing the part of Absecon Island ( south of Atlantic City ) where Ventnor and Margate lie. I was worried that this looked like some kind of advertisement when I first started the picture...I'm very happy to say that I no longer get that feeling. The component of the painting I most like is how the sand almost appears like clouds floating over the map.
The picture is about 90 percent complete, I just couldn't wait to show it.
