The heart wants what the heart wants. This painting is about staying true to your unique Self and following your own dreams, even when the rest of the world thinks you’re nuts. The abstract sunrise in the background has been referred to as a peacock tail, and I love that. It feels like a proud celebration of our differences and acceptance of others with unconditional love. The pattern was made with the words, “love is strange,” and it certainly is.
Part of an ongoing series about love and friendship, “Wild Love,” this original painting was made in oil, watercolor, pastel, and ink on paper, at 15” X 19”. Symbolism is an important part of these paintings. To read more about the meaning of the monkey and chicken, please read about them in my portfolio HERE.
