about this painting:


The enigmatic dawn

Every day starts with the same thing – morning, but it is always different. At this part of a day there are usually a lot of people that are hurrying to work, bustling and creating traffic jams. But there is a time when the sun is only preparing its beams to warm the Earth. These early hours are characterized by empty streets and enigmatic shadows. Rare by-passers don’t disturb the silence of the night, even birds are sleeping and hiding their heads under the feathers. If you go outside before dawn, you will be surprised how the big city with its daily rush and noise can be so quiet and undisturbed that it seems you are on a desert island. Poets and artists depict this serene beauty in their creations. What can be better than a vivid large canvas here that discloses predawn secrets?

While the city is sleeping

This piece of large canvas art tells us a story of early morning in a big city, when everyone is still sleeping. You can observe a silent bank of the river bordering on a tremendous park. These two neighbors are stretching to the horizon, and you can’t see where they end. The weather is nasty; it has been raining all night long, and light drops are still falling on a lonely by-passer. Who is this woman? What is she doing here in this early hour? She definitely has a strong reason to leave her house and stroll with an umbrella, stepping into puddles every now and then. There are a lot of shadows in the painting that make the viewers wonder what they can be. If you are ready to discover all the mysteries of predawn minutes, enjoy the painting ‘Before the birds start singing’!
