Beautiful October Sunrise, View From My Window, is an original acrylic painting.

  • I used professional-grade acrylic paints and varnished my work to protect it from UV radiation and air pollution.
  • The basis of the painting is a sheet of Fabriano, acid-free, age-resistant paper of 400 grams per square meter, 185 lbs.
  • Size: 35 x 25 x 0.1 cm, 9.75" x 14" inches. There is a white margin around the artwork (see the second photo), so the artwork's exact size is 32 x 22 x 0.1 cm.
  • The painting needs to be mounted and framed, and it is unframed for sale.
  • Style: impressionistic

It all started with a whisper. Not the kind that travels on the wind, but the kind that dances in the corners of your eyelids just before consciousness fully takes hold. A fleeting vision tinged with molten gold and the earthy musk of fallen leaves. It was an October sunrise, spilling across my windowpane, not just any sunrise, but one steeped in an impossible vibrancy as if nature itself had put its finest autumnal cloak on for a grand unveiling.

Sleep clung to me like cobwebs, but the memory, so vivid it felt tangible, sparked a fire in my chest. I stumbled out of bed, heart thrumming with the urgency of capturing this phantom before it dissolved into the fabric of the day. My overall, speckled with paint, became hastily donned armour. My brush became a conduit for the dream etched onto my fingertips.

But here's the thing: I won't tell you about the technical aspects of painting a sunrise. I won't speak about the colour palette, the light-and-shadow dance, or the brushstrokes that mimic the sun's fiery tendrils. However, I may talk about the dew-kissed leaves and the sleepy silhouettes of chimney smoke. In any case, my artwork is now ablaze with a symphony of oranges, pinks, and violets. But "Beautiful October Sunrise, View From My Window" is more than just a pretty sunrise.

It's the ghost of that first whisper woven into the paint with strands of nostalgia and a touch of melancholy. It's the bittersweet ache of autumn, the knowledge that soon, leaves will surrender to the wind, and vibrant mornings will be shrouded in mist. It's the thrill of capturing a fleeting moment, of snatching it from the jaws of forgetfulness and pinning it down with strokes of colour.

And it's the view from my window, not just a frame for the sunrise but a testament to the stories that unfold within its borders. The lives glimpsed in the windows across the street, the morning symphony of birdsong and distant chatter, the scent of coffee wafting from the corner cafe. My window is a portal, and "Beautiful October Sunrise" is an invitation to step through, to breathe in the crisp air and feel the sun's warmth on your skin, even if just for a moment.

So, instead of talking about pigments and techniques, I invite you to see beyond the paint. See the whisper that morphed into a sunrise, the bittersweet beauty of autumn, the stories whispered in the morning light. See the world, not just through my window, but through the lens of a captured dream. Because that, my friends, is the true magic of "Beautiful October Sunrise."
