Been trying to catch up on articles I missed. I love you cubist shapes in your work. Great piece.

I like the idea, and the work is well executed, but I am not sure it conveys the idea of anxiety and burden of saness that you intended. I think the problem may be in the central figure. If I cover him and just have the background player and the clouds, I get a much stronger sense of emotion. Maybe the central figure needs to be more in shadow? It's just that his looking straight at the viewer dispels some of the emotional heaviness evoked successfully by the other elements.

Thanks for coming by SA.
I like the central figure because he's confronting the viewer, maybe somewhat implicating the viewer. He's also strong and has courage.
OH and SA, don't stay secret too long.
