"Clear Boundaries" is a contemporary seascape that explores the liminal space where the vigor of the sea meets the tranquility of the sky. In this composition, I have layered thick, impasto brushstrokes to create a rich tapestry of color and movement. The sky is a blaze of warm pinks and oranges, melting into a calm, pastel horizon that hints at the end of daylight. Below, the sea churns with life and energy, depicted through bold blues and purples that give the water texture and depth. A solitary sailboat is the focal point, symbolizing serenity amidst the tumultuous waves. This juxtaposition is a metaphor for life's challenges and the calm we can find when we navigate them with purpose. The painting invites the observer to find their own peace amidst the chaos of the world, suggesting that there are clear boundaries within us that can provide solace and strength.
