It made sense to paint one of these garitas as they are so ingrained in my memory and in those who have visited this colossal structure. I remember running into one and being amazed at the breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean and sky as I listened to the sound of the waves crashing on the rocks below. I also remember imagining what it must have been like to stare up at the night sky from one of these posts back in 1595. I imagine they could see many stars and maybe even the Milky Way as the light pollution was so low. All this beauty the night before Sir Francis Drake and 25 ships attempted to invade El Viejo San Juan! I am grateful to have had the opportunity to visit El Morro. Without those memories, I wouldn't had come up with The Milky Way Over El Viejo San Juan. Cannot wait to go back!

This mug is so beautiful! Such great quality, with the gorgeous bright yellow & the art printed on it takes me right back to El Morro in the beautiful island of Puerto Rico. I’m obsessed!!!
This is a beautiful painting and I love how there's a yellow and blue mug option as they both compliment the piece. I actually couldn't decide which color to buy so I went with blue but may just grab the yellow one soon! It's a nighttime sky yet so colorful and I love that. Shipment took about a week and the packaging was good and neat so it arrived without a scratch.
I love this beautiful mug! It came super fast after I ordered! Packaging was great, not a scratch. Love starting my day, drinking my morning tea in this beautiful original art work. Thank you!! I also got the Autumn By The Lake mug. Love them both! :)
