It's not a painting I would actually want hanging in my house because the top two thirds of it is mildly disturbing. But the idea...You've got these folks down below who are going about their business and have no idea of the gruesome cloud that hangs above them. Is it their own cloud? Is it darkness they carry along within them? But there is one aware. And I love it that she is not impressed or concerned about the others. The only worry I have about her is the tentacle of cloud that is reaching down for her. Run to the mountains or something! I want to call to her. Get out of there before it pulls you in. Only she, the girl in full color. Only she is dressed in uniqueness rather than conforming to the drab shades of this place. Does that mean she has a chance? Will she escape? I hope so.

Beautiful in a mythical, magical way, and disturbing is several ways, for several reasons.
Just out of curiosity, is there significance in the fact that the only non blue is the one in a raincoat?

Absolutely beautiful. WItht he size of the image, I had to scroll a bit to see the bottom. But it was a nice reveal, the detail of the abstract pattern giving way to empty space and the small figures. It really draws the eye in nicely to the lone bright fellow.

The quote also goes nicely with it, making the viewer consider the architecture in the picture in a new light, the same way that one citizen seems to appreciate it more than the others.

Good grief!! What a gloomy and sinister world! I hope the differently-designed person on the bottom right is the one who's going to bring some light to it! :D

The upper side of this picture seems to portrait the city, mostly in its bad aspects.
The people who go past it, although seeing these bad aspects, don't mind them, since they thing they wont be harmed by them or just don't belive in them.
Only that yellow figure actually cares about that and stops to look up. Maybe that figure is the only one which accepts the truth.

Or I could be terribly wrong and this is just a photo of your lunch. What did it taste like? :XD:

Hmm. How interesting. I love the color scheme and all of the detail, and of course the random yellow figure. It's a great contrast. I feel like there's a story behind this. =o it would make for a great animated film!
