 Back to: Painting

Acrylic on paper, this painting was inspired by the lives of those working mundane day jobs, doing whatever they can in order to support their families or even themselves whilst they pursue their dreams.
Three figures, supposedly colleagues or friends, are seen standing outside of a back door- presumably their workplace, since one of the figures is holding a staff card on a lanyard. Their shoes are randomly thrown on the floor as a symbol of relaxation. As this is their break time, none of the figures makes the effort to smile at the viewer.
