The inspiration behind the painting was a scene at a sea shore. Walking on the beach seeing these boats probably abandoned for the day. As the water came in the boats elegantly moved up and as the water went back again the boats adjusted themselves in an almost lyrically elegant manner. As if they were notes of music and water the instrument. The boats and the sea water seemed to have attained a meditative bond. The other theme that this painting incorporated was the artist’s impression that this wave like movement of boats looked as if the boats were singing or talking to each other. As one boat arose and other went down, it almost seemed as if one rose to talk while the other was all ears. What could they be talking about? Stories from voyages far? Tales of long sojourn and distant lands? To visually present this effect a clear demarcation of the water color was made. The dark blue water representing the deep seas and the foreground with light blue color and a mixture of earthy colors their resting home. And the light sky color as a unifying color for the near and beyond. A deliberate attempt was made to not detail the boats too much as the object itself was not the story. The story of this painting is a story of the notes exchanged between the near and the far and the water and the movement of boats. That morning on that sea shore in the Mediterranean the boats and the water had stories they wanted to share amongst themselves or perhaps with the artist too.
