Art Description

Painting: Acrylic on Canvas.

A humanless beauty described only in the language of the birds. With Dawn Chorus I have tried to capture in paint the atmosphere of a midwinter dawn after a long frost bitten night. The sun takes it's time to roll up and over the steep mountains. This anticipation unfolds in dramatic changes of hue, then the moment all the birds have waited for - the fingers of light reaching into the gorge and fringing the tops of the ridges and trees in halos and sparkles of frost. The Tuis (birds) in the sky and at the tops of the trees all soaking up the warmth and singing to the sun.

This painting is the first work I have done since moving into the enchanted nature reserve of Waipori Falls in the South Island, New Zealand
