THE TALE OF A SEASCAPE

You know it...

 

 

It's that old, tireless wood, whose creaking voice speaks of all the adventures and travels of times that are gone and of times yet to come...

It's that characteristic, piercing smell of wood varnish that has been soaked by those waves a million times...,

It's that sea brine that's soaked that old, tireless wood with History and given it its most venerable title: Time-Honoured.

It's the brine of human perseverance that corrodes all obstacles and takes them out of the way... the symbol of the triumph of Man over all adversities in life...

 

You know it... It's the Sea... the Ship... the Seascape.

 

 

 

 

For the oil painting on the left, I chose to depict the feeling of light, calmness, and silence.

I, also, used an unconventional idea of mine, (compositionally), to reinforce the sense of the movement of the ship. Added to this,  I painted its background in such a way, so that it will give the impression of an oil painting on weather-worn wood, material inextricably linked to the sea...

 

 

 

This ship glides softly and peacefully in the stillness of the sea waters.

Either because it is carrying thoughts, or dreams, either because its view alone clears the mind, your soul travels with it... and its soul travels with yours...


The painting is titled Ship with No Name and is available for purchase in my Shop.
