Summer is a mesmerising season, everybody's beloved time. Whenever you look at this painting SICILY - PIECE OF HEAVEN you can feel with all your senses the bright day, the crisp, clear air offering superb views of the sea and across the countryside to the mighty outline of nearby Mount Etna.
Summer in Mitkov's paintings is colourful, fiery, fomenting passions and emotions... It is the season of the sun, ocean waves, green forests and magnificent mountains. Summer is a tale of nature's beauty as God wished us to experience. Nature is now fully awaken, vigorous and full of life. The artist's paintings of summer can bring us the warmth of the shining sun and its vital transformative power.
The air is filled with the scent of grass and flowers. Hope is glowing in gleams of sunshine and inspires new dreams. What splendid paintings! Let there be summer!
