Sun in my Hat

Natalia Proskuriakova
Saint-Petersburg, Russian Federation
Painting: Acrylic

This is a stylized vision of myself, after mentally heavy and terrible “Covid 2020 Year” …
I feel deeply sad and tired from this dangerous virus, which frightened and killed a lot of people on our Planet…
So, I decided to show my face in impenetrable black color – as a symbol of my sad experiences…
The background is made in soft green-gray colors, giving contrast to the hard geometrical line and figures, which make up my dress. Only my Hat is painted in bright yellow color, this is a symbol of the Sun, that still shines for all people on our Earth. Gold and warm light still give us power and hope to continue our fight with the deadly pandemic and faith to return to a happy life again.
