I did what you asked me
knowing I did not want to
I thought you would love me
if I ignored my own heart
But of course is a painting about a woman who did everything that her social group considered she should do and, as a reward, she was crowned with flowers.
But, she didn’t follow her own dreams, and now she fears that she no longer has time to do what she wants to do in life. Forcing herself to do things she didn’t want to do drained her strength away.
Acrylic and metallic paint on canvas.
