Sun Dried Dreams by Rayjmaraca Sun Dried Dreams by Rayjmaraca
(24in x 22in acrylic on canvas) $800 | 5000 元

[link]
My first painting in Hangzhou, China. This is a painting that popped into my head when I saw an older woman riding her bike down the street and carrying an absurd load of nonsense on the back of the bike. I immediately wondered what sort of things had happened to her over her life and how much pressure she may or may not have dealt with during that time. I don't know, maybe she absolutely loves what she does, but to me she seemed to be worn down and just beaten. It was sad. Anyways... I'm sure some more fluffy sci-fi animal abstracts will come soon but for now I had to get this painting out. hehe

I really like this piece! Especially the composition! I like how you make the newspaper collage flow into the lady as if the articles recorded important events in her life and all leading to her present state. Your painting tells a story, well done!

Can't believe I saw this just now- the message it conveys is so sad despite the bright colors- I like that technique! ^^b

Really like the influence and where it lead with this, before I'd read the description the colours spoke of warmth and vibrancy, then after reading, burn-out like an old photograph that was never treated with fix and left out in the sun.

Great job :thumbsup:
