One-a-Day: Heartache

Heartache by Rebekah Rogers

This is my absolute favorite piece right now and my final One-a-Day for the week. I found it on Facebook in an Incinerator Gallery feed and was stopped in my tracks. The image is arresting and haunting and beautiful and deeply resonates with me. It's a self-portrait by Australian artist, Rebekah Rogers, wonderfully executed in watercolor pencils and a fantastic interpretation of non-verbal communication, pain, and sorrow. It also reminds me of jewelry, the way the tears stream down to the heart like a chain and a pendant.

You can also find Rebekah on Tumbler.

Thanks for reading.
