Loving an Addict

Jill Joy - Loving an Addict, acrylic on canvas, 60x40"

This is part of the Forces of Nature Series. I painted this after dating a “Love Addict”. When he told me he was in 12 Step for love addiction I didn’t think much of it. I thought to myself — well, most of us are addicted to love right? Possibly but not in the sense that this man was. The amount of volatility, insecurity and level of demand was so high. It was like dating a storm. I painted this listening to Lucinda William’s song – “He Never Had Enough Love”.


One thought on “Loving an Addict

  1. Loving An Addict is a ferocious painting depicting two separate elements intensely linked. Again, I feel the power of this painting.
