Can you reach it? is a 12" x 16" oil painting by Peter Shostak created on Canvas. This Peter Shostak painting presents a narrative-rich scene of two children in a rowboat, adrift on a vast, calm lake. The older, possibly guiding the younger in the art of rowing, asks the poignant question implied by the title. The careful brushwork emphasizes the stillness of the water, with only the gentle ripples around the boat suggesting movement. Shostak's work often explores growth, learning, and the simplicity of rural life, all encapsulated in this quiet moment on the water. The image is both a literal and figurative exploration of reaching—whether for the distant shore, for a deeper connection, or for the understanding that comes with growing up.
