This is an acrylic painting on canvas. The canvas is actually quite old and had another painting on it that I wasn't very fond of.
When looking at this piece I thought of a sunset or a sunrise, but a very primal one. One that hadn't been quite formed yet. And then I thought of the first sunrise / sunset and what that might have looked like. In Christianity God created the sun on the fourth day, and that's where the title comes from. The first sunrise.
