My Boat - an Oil Painting by Vakhtang Kakulia

The subject matter of Vakhtang Kakulia's paintings are typically of mundane objects of daily life. They are presented in compositions that suggest deep symbolic meaning, and are typically painted in a style in which flat planes are broken down into patchwork pieces that give the impression of cubist construction.

This is one of four paintings in this collection that features a boat either as the main subject or as a background object. This painting is notable, however, for the fact that it uses pastel colors in the background, which is something that is not typical of the artist who typically uses earth tones.
