A sea of books with a sailboat in the middle.

Books take you on an adventure, a journey to far, far away. The boat emphasizes the journey. There are some poems on the painting:

A sea of books
A sea of books

‘The unknown is scary, I know
But what you find there,
Is full of beauty’

‘A book a day
Keeps the darkness away’

‘Books,
A journey
To far, far away’

‘An endless sea of imagination
Behind every word
A journey so far
With seas ever changing
A course unknown
Beautiful, yet sad
To every place
Known and unknown’

The word “beauty” from the first poem is cut off, allowing the viewer to decide what they think you find in the unknown.
