The title of the painting is ‘The Light of Men’. The light of life, where the sunrise is always comes after darkness. I do hope that we all overcome the dark times and survive. Moreover, I do hope that we get stronger and wiser and will appreciate in a full that we already have - the Earth, nature, light, love, hope, kindness, support...
‘…And life was the light of men. Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it’ (John 1:4)
This is a portrait of my son and my grandson. They bring light into my life. When I look at them I know that life continues and there is a sense in that. And because of that this painting is the best for me, I put all my heart and all my love into this work.
The Life is so fragile... I see humans’ souls as fragile lights of fireflies in the dark - it is so easy to break this light. And if I am able, as an artist, to transfer this light onto my paintings, maybe I keep and increase this light in the world? I so much hope - I do.
