The composition is maintained in a calm, summer color palette with a dominating pastel shade of turquoise. In this painting, it symbolizes water, the summer sky, peace, harmony, and time for relaxation.


The human figure encircles the image, extending beyond the frame, and itself creates a frame for the background. The frame is meant to symbolize a window or entrance to another world – a world of summer leisure and carefreeness. It is a place where the limitations of daily life blur, and human experiences extend beyond the usual confines.


“Summer” is a reflection on the passing of time, changes in our life.
