It Felt Like Home


It Felt Like Home, 24″x30″, oil on canvas


This painting is part of my You and Me series, and I’ve been working on it for a while. I’ve been revisiting a lot of older work lately, reconnecting with the original concept, and bringing it forward to who I am as a person now.

The underpainting is incredibly dark and dreary, as it started from a broken-hearted, desolate place. I’m too embarrassed to show the whole thing, but I hope this glimpse will suffice to communicate the difference.

After traveling this summer, I didn’t want to make unhappy art anymore, so I went back to this canvas with the new sense of light and warmth I found in India, and it finally felt like what I was trying to say.
