The Old Lake (long life)
There is not a real photograph. It is a realistic painting created intentionally.
It is really a tribute to the memory of my parents who are both in the other life.
The boat is a symbol of people’s lives. We all have our own boat with which to navigate the vast sea (lake) of life, and we carry everything in it, but mainly our experiences and memories … that could be written in a book. The book is the story of life. Above the book,the roses symbolize love, friendship and love we give and receive throughout our existence.
The boat in the foreground with the lake behind wants to express the journey of life from birth until the end. In this case, is the end of life.
Fog and points clearly want to express the mood and feelings to the obstacles that arise throughout life and having passed, so the fog is back. The boat is lit and it means, finally met the goals of life. The boat is dignity worn because they had spent a dignified and toured long existence.
The atmosphere of solitude is because each and every one of us, most people have in our lives is a really personal experience. We are alone in the womb, we born alone and rest alone.We pass a way alone to the eternity.
It is a message of love and understanding for the lives of others. Sometimes we see only our own life, just live our own lives and we forget that every one of this world, has his lake, his boat, his book and his roses. Thanks to all. Love you.
