The painting depicts a soldier returning to his native land after a long war. He follows a familiar road, sees all the same trees that have become somewhat higher. Along the road, you can see houses, the inhabitants of which, probably, also meet their defenders, and everything seems to be so unchanged, but life will never be the same again.
 The military confidently and proudly walks along a country road. Probably, after long days lived in fear and misfortune, it was a great happiness to be in their native lands. The artist was not in vain using bright colors to create this masterpiece. Warm summer day, green grass, cozy, warm houses and glimpses of blue clear sky, visible under the clouds, as a sign that the war is over, and all the terrible and dark behind.
This work of art was written in 1963.
