BEFORE IT'S GETTING DARKER THESE DAYS (LANDS END SAN FRANCISCO)
2016
150 (h) x 120 (w) x 4,5 cm
acrylic and oil on canvas

Don't fear the dark
Leave a light on
Fires still burning
Stars still wandering
Beyond the horizon line

Take a walk at last light
Before it’s getting colder at night
Before it's getting harder to breath
From the sky and fountain to the sea
I pray you will be with me

Take my hand on secret ways
Before it’s getting darker these days
Before it's getting harder to leave
From all the stars and mountains to the sea
I hope you will be with me

“The darker the night, the brighter the stars,
The deeper the grief, the closer is God!”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky (ex: Crime And Punishment)

* * * *

Inspired by San Francisco Lands End, by the fading beauty of autumn, announcing long and dark winter nights and by the poetry of Fyodor Dostoyevsky...

This piece is a true LARGE-SIZED PAINTING with wide frame side. 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 frame sides (about 4,5 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, a cover letter and my poem (especially 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.

Warm wishes,
Christian
