The Forgotten Ships - Lost in the sands

Painting – ‘The Forgotten Ships – Lost in the Sands.’ Three ships stranded in the sands of the Arab Sea. Three fishing boats among sand dunes. The boats are in white, cream, blue, black with red bottoms. Two are deep water vessels, the third is a flat-bottomed, shallow draft boat – perhaps a processing vessel. Beached on yellow sand dunes with green vegetation. Small, rectangular, painted on card, with plain, white printed label on bottom right corner reads: Aлмакаев P. Затряанные в пеках 3.636. The back is inscribed Aлмакаев P. The Forgotten Ships.
