Painting - Oil
Far from the crowds, out on a sailboat together, a couple in love creates a song of beautiful romance.
As the afternoon wanes into twilight, the lights in the distant city glow with a warm golden hue, and the tranquil water upon which the couple sails reflects the painterly image of the clouds above. The couple is not going any particular place, and there is no hurry to get there because they are exactly where they want to be right now: together, alone, with only the gentle strumming of the guitar and the soft splash of waves against the boat.
On the edge, wine glasses await a toast to their love and relationship, but these too can wait because the time is timeless, and the moment is one that they will live and relive together through a lifetime.
Serenade, the artwork, invites the viewer to step onto this boat as one of the people in it – to be the woman with the guitar, gently singing, or the man at the rudder, listening with delight. Into this intimate moment we are invited to join, to feel the quiet and tranquility, to embrace the strong and solid companionship between the two, to be with our best friend for life in a moment that is uniquely ours.
Such is romance, a song of love and commitment and joy and beauty – a song that is unique to each couple who joins together in this relationship. It is a song best sung in a sense of closeness and togetherness – while the lights of the city announce the busy humming of activity in an urban setting, the couple is literally distant from this, alone together, sharing a moment that only they will know.
Enter the world of Serenade, where the music of love and romance dances lightly in surroundings of peace and beauty.
