The First Light (2)

The first light
Slowly awakening trees,
for a brief moment
woven in liquid gold

General info on the artwork The First Light

This is a digital artwork, printed with high-quality ink on museum-quality cotton paper (Hahnemühle Photo Rag® 308gsm). The work comes in a limited edition of 10, signed and with a certificate of authenticity.

For these artworks, I start with one or more photographs made by myself. I edit it in multiple process runs and in several layers by color manipulation and adding and editing multiple digital photographic effects. I do that until a surrealistic atmosphere is created that touches me and tells the story I want to tell.

The photograph(s) I begin with has/have an impressionistic, surrealistic or abstract realist style, which is the basis for all my work.

And Then The Sun Stood Still

The word ‘solstice’ comes from the Latin solstitium meaning ‘Sun stands still’, because it seems that the movement of the Sun’s path, whether north or south, stops for a few days before reversing direction. On the Northern hemisphere, winter solstice means that the light returns: the sun turns towards us again. The days grow longer and the light regains its dominance.

I love this time of the year, in which the whole cosmos seems to come to a standstill for a moment.

I wish you peaceful dark days, filled with warmth, lights in the home and in the heart, and time to enjoy the silence and beauty of nature at rest. May we absorb a piece of that into our bodies and minds so that we can begin the new season of light full of energy.

‘And Then The Sun Stood Still’ is a new artwork in my collection ‘Secret Places’.

Through my artworks I ask you to reflect for a moment on the nature around you, on the beautiful feeling that nature can evoke, on what we lose when we continue on the road of 'never enough'.

Scent Of The Night

The light slowly fades away,
not a sound to be heard
The scent of the night arrives

A special calm comes over the evening when the sun begins to disappear behind the horizon and the light of the day fades away. Nature awaits the night.
I love that quiet moment of the day and the scent that announces the coming of night.

'Scent Of The Night' is a photo in my collections 'Flat Lands' and 'Evening Falls'.
I made it in a small nature reserve near the city of Nijmegen, The Netherlands.
