Hey Guys, Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New years !
I was planning to finish this off in December but Stuff came up >.< I wanted to paint something sad, yet happy at the same time.
I often see homeless folks on my way to work, and it pains to see them some times, especially when it’s so cold out. Sometimes I would give them my lunch because I don’t have change and it’s better knowing they will not be hungry for a while. Sometimes I see homeless folks with their pets too >.< I paint this because I’d like to think that the homeless can be just as happy as the people who has a home, or at least for some ;w; Lets not forget them during the hard times…
Here in Germany though there are often "begging gangs" on the streets - many of the beggers only want to take money, but not food or the likes. This pains me, because people, who have - for whatever reason - lost everything, would take any kind of help, wouldn't they? I know I would.
Another thought that comes to my mind: I find it amusing how people consider themselves so advanced, yet they allow others to be homeless and basically force them into situations like this. Honestly: how advanced are we if we allow others to suffer this much?
It really is a bitter-sweet composition. Great work. I really wish mankind wasn't so forced into the capitalistic system as much as they are, though I do not know of any other working system, which would be better. I like how this masterpiece forces the viewer to think, yet at the same time presents him/her with lines and shapes, that would require tremendous knowledge and practice to be drawn the way they are. I have seen a lot of artwork in the past decades - along with artwork from Picasso and many other famous artists. It's just that I prefer to see images that require a master to be drawn AND images, which carry a subtle, but inignorable messages - such as this one! Thank you!
