The woman that inspired this painting prefers to be identified solely by her initials, KG.
"Found My Feet" is an intimate 6x6-inch oil painting crafted with thick strokes from palette knives, the bird, adorned in blues, greens, and yellow-oranges, gracefully rests against a serene light blue background.
This small painting draws inspiration from KG whose therapeutic outlets include creating art, listening to music, driving, and immersing herself in the serenity of the woods. The hummingbird, painted in emerald and viridian hues, reflects her personal palette of calming and enchanting colors, embodying the joy she finds amidst nature's embrace.
The light blue backdrop serves as a reflection of the woman's preference for peaceful environments, avoiding places that are noisy, dirty, or overwhelming. The textured strokes, achieved with palette knives, add a tangible dimension to the artwork, allowing viewers to feel the subtle energy and movement within the painted hummingbird.
"Found My Feet" encapsulates the woman's journey—her struggles with self-doubt, past incidents of despair, and the ongoing process of learning to live and appreciate life at her own pace. The hummingbird symbolizes resilience, mirroring her efforts to navigate emotional traumas rooted in a history of familial discord and the learned habit of keeping emotions concealed.
Within the strokes of the hummingbird's wings, KG's story unfolds—a testament to the strength discovered when one finds their feet on the path to healing and self-acceptance.
