Gryning 24x30 cm Acrylic on canvas

"Gryning" is a word that may sound a little harsh in the beginning to my italian ear but at the sime time has a nice melody with the repetition of two consonants.

The first time I have heard it, I could not imagine that it referred to that particular moment of the day when the Sun is still hidden but her light begins to be visible from the horizon.

Like the dusk, this is a strange, nearly magical time when the reality is not certain and the chaniging is repentine.

I like to imagine this moment with the drops of the night that become vapours from the soil and the trees are dressed in fog. I always associate this feelings with the album "Microcosmos" from the blackmetal band Drudkh.
