My painting symbolises the idea of being lost. Sunflowers, according to the Greek myth of Clytie and Helios, always face the sun. The skateboard uses the colour that symbolises dusk. I gave the sunflowers eyes so they could gaze in different directions, which creates an illusion that they are trying to express something. Orange indicates warmth and positivity which contrasts with blue, which means the opposite. I gave the sunflowers blue eyes to suggest sadness, along with water droplets in the background. Vines are tangled around the background like a maze, creating layers.
