about this painting:
IN THE PORT
The call of the sea
For centuries, the human race has been pulled to the sea. Can it be explained by our thirst for exploration of distant lands that lie beyond our sight? Or the poetic effect the endless vastness of swaying water has on our soul? Or simply the fact that we all came out of the ocean millions of years ago? One way or the other, the rhythm of waves, the salty smell of the light breeze and the blissful feeling that seizes us when we find ourselves on the sea shore tremendously impacts our entire beings. Is it any wonder that so many people leave their homes and stir their boats to the sunlit horizon like their brave ancestors with a noble mission of discovering a new continent? And it doesn’t matter whether it is a sales ship, a cruise liner or simply a lonely yacht of a crazy romantic. The sea is never just about sailing. It’s a whole new experience, a small life of its own, a wonderful world you’ll never forget.
More than just another day
Welcome to the port, a place of so many arrivals and departures that you lose track of vessels coming and going as you sit on the pier lazily with your feet dipped in water. But right now it’s silent and motionless. All shipping boats have flocked together, their bright sides and high masts reflecting in the still water surface. The sailors are taking their time off in a local bar, clinking greasy mugs heavy with beer, boasting their catch and flirting with the waitress. After that, some of them will return to their snug homes, back to their wives and kids, some will fall sleep slightly awash right at the counter, their beards soaked in a puddle of booze, and some will stroll out, light up a pipe and sink into their thoughts sending ghostly rings into the night sky, lulled by the calm wash of water quietly beating against the pier. The night will take the harbor in its starry embrace and whisper tales of tomorrow into its salted ears until the first break of dawn.
