This motif is one of the most popular in P. Kalpokas’ works. He grew to like it at the early stage of his oeuvre as a sign of secession and later he often used it in resolving other artistic problems – those of impressionism, the temper of nature, the dynamics of the picture, and others. The vertically prolonged format helps to focus on the movement of the rivulet and its springtime vivacity. An important role is played by the impressionistic and tremulous light, which helps to feel the living breath of nature.
