This is such a wonderful painting. It evokes an emotional response in the viewer. I can feel the breezes, and smell the ocean. It is both relaxing yet poignant. This is an evocative evening scene with boats by a sandy beach. In the foreground an impressive sailing boat is floating on the water near a wooden jetty with a small house. In the background a three-master rises above the horizon against the background of a cloudy sky. To the right the setting sun casts a beautiful light on the sky and the surface of the sea.
