On Interpretation

When I was home, I spotted this picture on my parent's wall. I believe I gave this to my mother three or four years ago. I remember at the time really thinking she would like it, but come to find out later she interpreted the image as being quite sad.

I was mostly interested in the colors and the ways in which the single wave stands out amidst the relatively calm waters.

But upon further reflection, maybe I see what she's saying. The wave is alone on a grey day. Although I'm still attracted to the aesthetics, maybe it is a little sad.
