Ember of Life by kirilart Ember of Life by kirilart
"Ember of Life"
oil on canvas, original size: 48 x 40 cm.

As a child I believed that fireflies are fabulous creatures from a fairytale world and in the night they are trying to illuminate their way back home. Perhaps back then on a subconscious level was the birth of the idea to paint the fireflies, but in recent years often comes to my mind and slowly formed in the course of time. 2 weeks ago I decided that the time has come and I know well enough the"Ember of Life" in nature to reproduce them on the canvas. Whether I have succeeded, you have to decide :)

This is sooo beautiful... I can't stop looking at it. Do you draw all of these by on paper? You are very talented.
