Above the Clouds

After spending the summer holidays with my family in Indonesia, I found myself tired and stressing about the future while on the plane home to Perth. After all, I was heading back to an intense year of school and exams. However, when I looked out of the window, I saw beautiful clouds from above and suddenly everything seemed so peaceful. It pushed me to reflect on the contrast between the noisy, commercial world on the ground versus the beauty in the sky. I reflected on how small we are as humans and how we get caught up in our own little bubbles of life. I wanted my painting to be a window to the clouds and explore these existential ideas.
