Does it count if someone in the family commissions a painting for a Christmas present?

My in-laws used to live at Seabrook, in South Carolina. The last part of the drive is through a tunnel of gorgeous live oaks and, on a day such as this one, the sun streams through the trees and makes your heart skip with anticipation of the beauty you are approaching. My husband took a picture through the windshield of the car and this was the sight on the way. Now when I look at it, I can just imagine driving along in a little red sports car to Seabrook for the weekend.

My father-in-law passed away and my mother-in-law had to move closer to children for safe keeping, but she pines for the days they lived at Seabrook. She asked for a painting from me for her Christmas present this this is what I came up with. I hope when she looks as this painting she will remember the drive and the good life she had there.
