This is a deconstruction of another piece in this repertoire. Oh that is such a pompous sentence. It makes me sound like I’m on one of those cookery programmes we all love to watch.
I don’t think it will be that hard for you to find the painting from which this piece is derived.
It was named by my sister. Thank you Frinsk. There is a bit of a morbid underlying theme to the painting in that my parents have both passed recently. The element removed is the family house that as a home is always more than the bricks and mortar with which it was created. A fairly obvious symbolism but I think this is what makes the title work.
Bereavement is always a difficult process that only time can resolve. However if you know the aspect of my parents house – it faces roughly south – you can see that this is a scene at dawn and is meant to show an optimistic start to a fundamental change in your life.
There is a counterpoint created by the lake in the foreground which is a nod of respect to a lyric by the Finn brothers …There’s a mirror lake before me but I’m frozen when it’s time to jump… A bit heavy handed my apologies but then I have never been known for my subtlety.
