The Daybreak

12" x 42"

Before the daybreak, before the hustle and bustle of daytime activity, there are a few hours of stillness in the dark. The Novelist Inoue Yasushi describes it as follows: “The darkness before the daybreak… is like the darkness around the stage, where all is set for performance and filled with great expectation and excitement before the curtain goes up."

The night landscape in my mind was not the glitter and colorful like the one in Las Vegas. Rather, it was of a city like San Jose, surrounded by hills, unadorned, but pregnant with day’s excitement. I hope this painting conveys such feeling of a dawn.
