Battlefield Survivor

(Mixed media. water colours, gouache, acrylics. 36 x 25 cm)

In love, like in any war, you have to pay the prize. She would wear the scars forever but was happy just to have survived.

For Inspire Me Thursday - Warrior and Illustration Friday - Cracked.

Inspired by the song "Love is a Battlefield" by Pat Benatar:

We are young
heartache to heartache we stand
No promises, no demands
Love is a battlefield
We are strong
no one can tell us we're wrong
Searching our hearts for so long
both of us knowing
Love is a battlefield

How poignant--it brings back all the feelings of the broken heart. It is truly a physical pain and your piece is perfect.
