Words Hurt by Craftea Words Hurt by Craftea
There's the saying "Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me" But after a recent happening, I learnt just how much words can hurt.
During the last couple of weeks after this incident, I was in a dark dip filled with self loathing, to the point where I didn't want to paint anymore, I nearly threw my pen down altogether, however I picked it back up yesterday because art is my life and doing this piece helped me start painting again.
Words don't cause cuts or bruises, but they can wound deeply inside. It isn't something that can be covered up with a plaster or a bandage and others may not see the effects or pain that words have have, but to the recipient the hurt and damage is constantly there.
This is the darkest piece I've done to date, but it reflects how dark my mood has been.
I took the 'words hurt' in to a literal sense in this piece, to represent that even though you might not always see the damage done from what you say, it is there.
So please be careful what you say to people, because words really can hurt.

Great picture. This picture conveys all you can tell with the expression "word can hurt"!
And a picture can tell more than a thousand words. :)

I absolutely love this picture. It holds meaning, it holds emotions and feelings. This picture shows that words cut deep, and can leave scars on people's mentality for years. People say "oh its just words they cant be that bad suck it up" but there is so much hate a person can take before breaking, amd leaving scars.
This picture holds Pain,depression, and shows that when you're all alone you have to wash the blood away and then lie to people saying you're ok. Heh, this comment is just all over the place but overall, bravo on the emotion you circled around. I honestly love the coloring and shading.
Keep up this amazing work
