Two Boats on the Beach

Two Boats on the Beach tells a story of recent arrivals, possibly even intimate friends who have chosen to escape from chaotic lives to find relaxation and exploration on a sandy shore. The proximity of the boats with their shadows touching, denote a close relationship between the travelers. The wooden trim of the exteriors are similar in model and size and composed with equal diligence. But it is in the crafts’ differences that the painter expresses the characters of both the vessels and travelers. One is bare, simple and proper condition. The other is complex, worn, more experienced.
