REMINDER! ARTQUEST-TRAIL#13 (ARTchallenge). 700 TRAIL +15 SBD Prize Pool. Invited Judge @lpfaust!!!

in artchallenge •  5 months ago


Now I am on vacation for 1,5 months at the resort at the river Volga near my native town where I am originally from (Togliatti). If you don't hear from me it means I have bad internet. ))

This week we have an invited judge!!! And I want to tell more about this amazing person. This is @lpfaust.

I am really thankful to this person as he was one of the first who encouraged me here at Steemit in the very beginning. Probably everybody had the situation when you just started your "career" here and nobody even read your posts. I even don't mention earnings. You could spend many hours for writing your posts but there were luckily just few readers and upvotes. When I was ready to give up suddenly I turned out to be in the post of @lpfaust who were making regular posts with hidden gems. It really helped me to stay here. He gave me wings))).
@lpfaust showed me that my posts were being read and even valued. Thank you very much, dear @lpfaust, and such people like you help to build this platform.
I should also mention that @lpfaust is a very intelligent person who makes very interesting posts!

So, I am very happy that he agreed to judge my contest!

THEME FOR ARTCHALLENGE #13 is a surreal painting of a Polish artist Pavel Kuchinski. There was request to choose more optimistic painting and I will try....Actually it could be optimistic to one of the side...or not)). You decide....

So, here is my interpretation. Not my best work, but I am tired:


Thank you! I like it!

  • One mans trash is another mans treasure
  • One group pleasure is another groups misery
  • A tale of two worlds

shortness is a sister of talent.)) good one))

It seems to me like it could represent the circle of social dynamics. Everything we use comes from somewhere, and no matter how happy and innocent it may seem, it is always important to remember that someone had to work hard for what you are consuming.

Perhaps the rice is a reminder of the society we have built.


very good one! thank you!


Thanks. I had a a hard time with it, it's a nice picture though!


we have new one every week!!!!!! I hope you will be a constant participant))

The farmers toil to make a living,
Labourously planting rice, grieving.
Why you say? A long day's hardwork
Barely puts on the table
A loaf of bread, butter or pork.
Oh daily struggle, what a feat!

The other end of the spectrum
Shows those of wealth, a bride and groom.
With such abundance they are worry free
Never did work just as hard, you see.
They are only meant to live blissfully.


With the throwing of rice,
This luck continues hopefully.
The same rice from our farmers
Who worked hard for a mere penny.

The farmers are collecting their rice back. Why shouldn't they? It's sacred to them!

Would you want to see your blood sweat and tears thrown away so needlessly?

Attempt no. 2:

After creeping up conspicuously to a nearby wedding, the lead farmer tells his comrads "So picking rice makes you unhappy?" ...


interesting! thank you!
