This painting is a surrealist picture. I wanted to get land, sea and sky within one painting. I also wanted to portray opposites, as depicted in the vast dryness of the desert, compared to the extreme wetness of the sea. But at the same time, while both teeming with life in one way or another, both are drying and inhospitable to a human. Both are difficult to navigate without stars. The rose has seven petals, which represents the septenary patter of the seven directions of space, the seven days of the week, seven planets (esoteric) and seven degrees of perfect.
