Battle Scars

by Kelly Shoemaker in Miscellaneous

This painting is titled “Battle Scars” it is 10x 20 inches, oil on stretched canvas. I revisited a familiar theme in this piece, which was depicting inner trauma in a physical way.    
What if our inner scars showed up on the outside? How would we look? If we could see the trials a person had been through, would we be kinder to one another?
When I paint with these ideas in mind, I always try to show a bright side as well. She is scarred, but she’s still standing, still moving forward, and striving toward a yellow happiness in the near future.
This piece will soon be listed for sale at, along with more than 100 other paintings.
