Oil on canvas, 2001

One very nice evening I was walking along the river Pripiat. The evening was filled with the silence, the sun was getting behind the horizon, the air was marvelous. Suddenly I saw an amazingly beautiful pond. This was like in a dream. The birch trees were shining with the moon light. One could hear the frogs talk. Duckweed was playing with yellow-turquoise-pearl colors. It was a state of eternal mystery of being.  I immediately desired to fill the canvas with this light. I sketched étude and later at home I made an interesting painting.
