The girl in melancholic shades of gray stands on a small island, everything around her is uncertain. The boat is a subtle poetic reference: we have the opportunity to leave, yet we are still on the tiny island. From the picture we can feel the melancholy of closure and isolation of the pandemic period, and the hopelessness of our situation.
