Jack Oโ€™Lantern Sleeping Rough

A ‘ghost’ – an invisible neighbor.

Repainted: Hanging On

I painted the background with watercolor and removed flaky strokes of pastel.

I’m not sure whether I should retouch gibbons. They also have pastel strokes but to me it seems less jarring than in the background. What do you think – shall I retouch the gibbons to make it look finished?

Thank you very much, everyone, for helpful advice! I think I will submit both this one and the other one. The deadline is today and the most pressing question for me is whether to retouch the gibbons. I’d appreciate your feedback!

Compare Colors: Home

In the above, I tried colors different from the previous one (below), which was more vivid. The call is for an exhibition for homeless people, and I think some gravity is due. I still don’t want to make it taken for granted by expressing gravity with sad colors, so I’m trying to find a right balance. What do you think – how would you compare this one with the previous one (below)?

Hanging On

I plan to submit it to a regional call for artworks under a theme โ€œHomeโ€. Please let me know if you have feedback so I can make a last minute change. I think I will make the background denser for now.

Mixed media, 2018

This is my first try on semi-abstract painting. It also concludes a series on my move from the US to the UK. In the series, I tried to record and reconstruct places I love as I left them:
