This is an older piece. But many people say they love it, so I am posting it. Also making it available for print. Its a nice on to put on the wall. I have had the original on my wall. But it sold a few years ago.. *sigh*
I just figured out that there were people in the background, hiding under umbrellas..I love itI do wish there was rain, though..
I was hoping youd post more of this series, I love the 4(?)that are already up. its interesting to see someone elses take on it, as the weather here is pretty much the same all year round
Oooh...i love the uniformity of the objects and people (or umbrellas, haha) in this painting. The long rectangular buildings in the background really draw my eye to April with her slightly perturbed expression. To me the message seems to represent the downfalls of living in an urban city--somewhere like chicago or new york. Although this isn't a bird's-eye-view painting, i get the feeling that i am looking from up above, because you emphasize the people's umbrellas more than the actual people under them.
im not sure who did the piece. but there was a man who was at a booth with a woman. the room was full of people but it was just him and her repeated to look different. i love this ideal. i know it might not be exactly like that but those shapes are pretty good. like the colors and tones and just all around feeling i get when seeing it very nicely done.
I don't think I've said anything so far about this particular peice, but love them all, and I was at school today in the library reading American Artist and I saw this painting! It didn't say who it was by, but by the style of it I knew it was yours! I was so proud, hehe...Just thought I would say that and I'm so glad that you are getting the recognition you deserve!
Ahhh! ...Good to see that you're putting the old ones up, and good to see that the best ones are the ones people are asking for. I always loved this image since it was (cropped) on the Moya page. Another one of your best.
I love your use of simple shapes and forms to create the overall pic. Your use of colour is great too...you really get across a nice and bleak atmosphere throughout the whole pic. Having the little girl looking up at us in the foreground is a nice touch as well...really draws the viewer into the pic.
I really, really love this -- I'll add it to my faves.
its so beautiful...you are so good with expressions! i am happy to have had the privelage of meeting you at your last show. you're a real sweet guy as well as a mindblowingly good illustrator.
just like i've never heard a pink floyd song i didn't like, i've never seen a piece of yours that has disappointed me.
she kind of reminds me of the asian lady that is on mad tv sometimes. just the defiant, questioning, but demanding look on her face. i like how she stands out, everyone is in unison, hidden under their red umbrellas. i really like this.
