DAILY PAINTING: "The Disappeared" This painting focuses on the five missing booksellers in Hong Kong. They began to disappear in November, and the last man was gone by December 30. They all work for a book store that sells items that could be seen as critical of the mainland Chinese government.
This is largely an underpainting, with the main color choices yet to come, but you can see the concept. I have used a wilted orchid because that flower is on the Hong Kong flag, meant to symbolize harmony.
Of course, we hope for their safe return!
