Sometimes images appear as I work with them. In this case I started out with the mission to illustrate the concept of a broken heart. I was working intuitively.
Thinking of grief. Pain. Layers of loss. Niggling thoughts that open the wounds. Healing.
First I put down layers of organic, natural shapes, then a woman who the broken heart belongs to. Then tears. Fish. Several wounds, or broken hearts. When the illustration had come together I could also see the Earth Goddess. Our climate emergency. Her grief.
