Lilac – First emotions of love
(2020) oil painting
Lilac portrays the first emotions of love through a comparison between the flower and the feeling.
It blooms in spring when the cycle of nature starts; a relationship begins with these feelings of infatuation.
The gentle pastel color of the lilac are the romantic feelings that have not yet turned into deeper love (a good symbol for profound love would be a rose with a rich red color), thus the pale color.
The scent of the flower is sweet and enchanting, it entrances your whole body, just like when you are falling in love, there is the famous saying you see everything through pink-coloured glasses- it affects your whole being.
