OIL ON CANVAS. ORIGINAL SIZE 28x46 in
- Children often sail toy boats, anxiously following their progress, anticipating their fate in turbulent waters.
- Later, some of us discover the boundless, chaotic sea, full of surprises.
The goblet with the sailboat is a microcosm of life or, rather, of how we experience life and bear up under current circumstances. Hence, there is a saying about a "storm in a tea cup" that we use when someone is unduly worried about insignificant matters. At the same time, through recreating such a complex environment as that of the sea or the atmosphere, we learn about (and get to understand) the world around us, its unity, and beauty.
