About this artwork
A rather serious looking couple drifts along in a canoe, both figures look ahead but in different directions. The man pours the woman a glass of wine. A warm, muted sky overhead, and an abstracted lake and plants in the foreground. The boat and plants cast shadows, with the far left shape resembling a shark fin, possibly to add to the drama of the scene. Diana effortlessly mixes humor and tension in this narrative painting.
