I did this painting a few years ago. I hope it is okay, it seemed to fit the challenge pretty well. I’ve long been a fan of Edward Hopper. I am drawn especially to his urban scenes with their strong geometry, solitary figures and feelings of loneliness, regret, and resignation. One of my favorites is “Office in a Small City.” I was thinking of this Hopper piece when I did “Leftovers.” Basically, I asked the question, what does this person’s life look like outside of the office? Dwarfed by the buildings and even the flower arrangement is the solitary office worker, leaving a restaurant where he has just eaten alone, looking for his keys, carrying his leftovers back to an empty home. Like the food in the Styrofoam container, he is a leftover contained in the environment of the small city.
