Subject matter
This print is characteristic of many of the scenes Doug Webb creates. Often blending everyday environments such as bathrooms with natural and adventurous realms, Webb's work aims to create a juxtaposition between "urban living" and the "dream of utopia based in nature." This work portrays the dream of a nautical adventure and visions of an idyllic desert landscape confined by the reality of everyday life suggested by the bathroom sink.

Physical Description
A hyper-realistic image of a sailboat with a full crew in a sink filled with water. The sail boat has an american flag on the back. In the background, behind the sink, is a formation of desert cliffs.
