TRUE AT FIRST LIGHT II
120 x 100 cm
acrylic and oil on canvas
In the last hour of the night
Our intentions are fine
And we believe in world's beauty
Till we betray what we're fighting for
Till all is aflame what we should love
Till first light will wake us up again.
To say it in different, but very true words by Hemingway:
"All things truly wicked start from innocence."
"True At First Light" is the title of the last published novel by the US-American novelist Ernest Hemingway, written until 1954, but first released by the son decades after his death.

This piece is a true LARGE-SIZED PAINTING. For a large-scale, aesthetic and colourful impression on your wall AND as my authentic and personal artwork with an artistic subsurface message.
I use exclusively oil and acrylic colours, canvas and wooden frames in a professional museum quality. The painting wears my signature on the front and is signed, entitled and dated on the backside. Deliberately the sides (about 2 cm wide) are not part of the painting and show the black painted canvas. The painting is ready to hang (on the backside: high-quality iron plates with metal inserts and nylon rope for gallery use), unframed and doesn’t need a frame or any additional surface treatment. The piece will be safely shipped in a custom wooden crate. It will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity and a cover letter and my poem (written for this painting) as an additional part of the artwork.
Please note: In context pictures are not necessarily to scale and are for illustrative purposes only. If you have any questions about this painting or any other piece, feel free to contact me and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.
Thanks so much for taking an interest in my work.
