Fisherman and his son's color is blue:
As a fisherman spend most of his time of his life in water,his color is blue.
After being born his child's future already been decided.This custom has been happening for ages. Son of the fisherman,and his son's son is going to be a fisherman as well,this has become a custom for them.
Fishing net and fish:
Fishing net is indicating fisherman's thinking, belief, desires.
And here colorful fishes indicating happiness,everyday he wishes to catch a lot of fishes(lots of happiness) ,like those colorful fishes his life will also become colorful. But he doesn't know with his small fishing net he can't catch all the fishes that's means all the happiness.Even he can't fullfil all of his desires.
For this he needs a big fishing net.That's means he have to get out of his circle,he should get rid of narrow mendness and inccrease the area of his thinking.
Family In Fisherman's one Hand, and fishing net on the other hand:
It's telling that fisherman's family depends on him and the fisherman depends on that fishing net.His life is stuck in that net,so is his death.
Downside is dark and Upside is bright:
Below the storm in the sea and above a bright colorful day is indicating that the fisherman fights against the darkest night to provide his family the brightest day.The storm is telling a fisherman's stuggles during catching fish and this also indicating all the ups and downs of his life.
Fisherman's life means full of fishes thats why those fishes surrounded him and his family.Dead fish is indicating that,by sacrificing their lives they bring happiness to that fisherman's life
The blood of the dead fish turned into sunlight:
This is indicating that the fisherman's family can spend a colorful day because of sacrifice of those dead fish.
In our liife what good things we get,there is someone's sacrificing of something behind that. To bring smile to ones face someone has to sacrifice something and this is universal truth.
Though i have illustrated a story of a fisherman in this painting,everything here is related to all of us.Here sacrificing dosen't mean not only life sacrificing but also all kind of sacrificing.
This sacrificing happening everywhere every single moment.
