The Sad Armadillo

The Sad Armadillo

Madeleine Kaye

I chose privacy and independence.  It's an oil painting I based from a quick photograph I took of a girl I had recently met at college. Despite being kind and friendly towards me and everyone around her I learnt later she was very tired and sad due to a recent personal loss.  The photo caught her in a quiet moment between chatting with me.  Due to her private nature, I had barely noticed how tired and sad she could really be at the same time as talking to the people around her.  She was also standing in front of her college in the photo and her silhouette is also stands out.  I always liked how she resisted fashion and wore her independence proudly.  I hoped this painting could show that.
