Sometimes a painting is just a painting. No message. No complex underlying compositional equations, .. and no deciphering meanings.
Sailboat in a tidal pond, is just such an example. I did this last year, and it is really nothing more than a place in my mind, derived from a place I was at, and translated into this painting. I thought it a pleasant scene at the time, and thats all I needed to convey it. Sailboat lazily being pushed by a gentle breeze into this backwater pond on a soft and splendid day.

  1. This painting is a tender moment. Very nice.

  2. This is a gorgeous painting! I love those kinds of days where you can watch the boats sailing across the lake. xxx
