Women on shore, looking at the horizon, comes in mind.
This fisher’s wife is surrounded by water/sea, which is her life, her living.
These women are always worried, always grieving because their men
fathers, sons, brothers, husbands have their jobs in one of the most dangerous places. The sea took her love from her.
The nudity of this woman underscores her grief and suffering even greater.
The netting of the fishers you’ll find throughout my painting, as well as many fisher’s boats.
On the right of the nude, there’s a compass.
There are also several sun rays filled with musical notes, which portrays that there’s always a silver lining in life.
The grieving woman I ‘borrowed’ from Pablo Picasso’s “Blue Nude”. I think he would not mind.
