"This painting was inspired by a very cold but sunny Saturday visit to Crystal Palace food market in South London. The market is organised by the Crystal Palace Transition Town Group which aims to promote sustainability in the local economy. It's a great example of both community building and economic change and I wanted to show it in the painting to stress a sense of positive connection between people and nature."

"Hope - 7th finalist from WCA" by Raju Dyapur
"This is one of my favorite paintings as it shows the hope of something good about to happen. Something as in "Miracle" or "unexpected". Don't we all have hope for something?
