The woman that inspired this painting prefers to be identified by her initials KH
Inspired by the personal narrative of KH, a woman I interviewed, the thick brushstrokes and botanical elements mirror her connection with nature. The choice of colors reflects her appreciation for vibrancy and the nuanced emotions embedded in her story.
"It Doesn't Feel Like Love" invites viewers into a world of expressive brushstrokes and intricate nature shapes etched into the canvas with a palette knife. The color palette features light gray, blue, green, yellow, and subtle touches of black.
Titled "It Doesn't Feel Like Love," the artwork delves into KH's experiences, including the startling realization during her honeymoon that her husband did not want to be with her. The layered composition speaks to the complexities of her journey.
The light gray and blue hues reference a sense of introspection and emotional depth, while the green and yellow elements represent the resilience found in nature and the enduring spirit of growth. Intermittent touches of black echo the shadows of past struggles, including her childhood where she grappled with her brother's hurtful words.
Thank you KH for sharing your story & inspiring this painting.
