A speed-painting of a motive I've wanted to do for a long time. Took me about 1 hour in Photoshop CS5.
This painting is dedicated to my grandfather, who didn't die at the battlefield, but suffered from trauma throughout his life, as he experienced a lot of bad things during the war, fighting the Germans.
His wife died quite early, and he never fully rejuvenated after the loss of his dear wife. I can't imagine the torment that he had to go through, bearing the agony of war-memories on one shoulder, and the agony of missing his true soulmate and love - on the other shoulder.
