The story I'm going to share today happened when I was a sophomore in high school.
In the first week of school, the club had to recruit new students.
Me and my classmates participated in school club performances.
We prepared a stage play that perfectly integrated the school song
and were very looking forward to this stage play, and very well prepared.
Since the club performances were in the afternoon,
we were riding bikes on the school field to relieve our tension.
Suddenly, after a sharp turn my bike crashed,
I instinctively used my right hand to hold my body.
I felt very uncomfortable and tingling, but I still finished our club performance.
After the event was over, my hand hurt even more
so I went to the doctor and found out my hand fracture….
But I still finished my work.
This story taught me
“No matter how difficult it is, how much pain, we still need to do our best to achieve our current goals."
What is the artwork about?
這幅作品的靈感來自我媽媽在她上 9 年級的那一年。那天，她在午餐後和她的朋友在演出開始前騎自行車。 不幸的是，出現了一個大轉彎，使自行車失控，並撞毀了。 但她還是以某種方式完成了整個節目。
This artwork was inspired by my mom from the year she was in 9th grade. That day, she was riding her bike with her friend after lunch before the show started. Unfortunately, she took a sharp turn which made the bike go out of control and crash. Well, she still finished the whole show somehow.
In my painting, I drew the scene of the crash and her holding her bike right after she picked it back up.
What can you see in the picture?
我為我的油漆選擇了 ⌈淺綠色、深綠色和深紅色⌋。 原因之一是建築物很舊，而且跑道很亂。 :) 暗色到可以比亮色調更能體現出老舊的感覺。
Well, it is the crash scene, including the buildings and of course a running track, yes they were riding on the running track, isn’t it cool! Then there’s some grass for decoration.
I chose “Light Green, Dark Green, and Dark Red” for my paint palette. One of the reasons is that the buildings were old, also the track was messy. :) Dark conveys oldness better than light colors can!
What was your goal when making this artwork?
一旦我開始我的繪畫，我立刻覺得我搞砸了。 但是當我離完成越來越接近之餘，我認為它會越來越好！ 好吧，不是最好的，但至少我完成了它並且看起來不錯。
Once I started my painting, I instantly felt like I had messed up the drawing under it. But the more I finished, the better it got! Well, it didn’t turn out the best but at least I finished it and it looks good.
How do you want the viewer to feel when they look at your interview, transcript, and artwork?
在這幅畫中，我試圖畫出我媽媽墜摔車後牽起車的樣子。 我想表達我媽媽那一刻的痛苦，這也是我選擇深色的原因！ :D
In this painting, I am trying to draw the montment after my mom crashed. I'm trying to show the pain my mom felt at that moment, which is also a reason I chose darker colors! :D
What else do you want viewers to know about your artwork?
Like I said, I hope every viewer can feel the pain my mom felt in that moment. As well, I hope everyone can feel how uncomfortable it was when they view this wonderful painting.
