If you have ever been in love, or even quite smitten, this piece is so "heart-wrenchingly" relatable.

The Heart; Having been violently pierced with cupids' arrow, it slices in two despite the obvious warning "fragile". Cupid doesn't care.

I enjoy the fact that perhaps a fruit was referenced for this, I feel like if the metaphoric heart had a flavour, it'd be cherry or maybe even citrus. Showing a heart can be sweet but can also quickly turn bitter. The bright red and plain background, an interesting contrast.

So many ideas and themes wrapped in this one piece. I also enjoy that one sliver of heart, it looks like a rose petal. Hearts can be delicate as a flower and need to be treated with care.

One wonders if this heart can be repaired, or is it too late?

Unfortunately the majority of us, at one time or another know exactly how this feels. For me this conveys the intense agony which accompanies such emotional trauma.

I was thinking about that just 2 days ago! Why people don't paint real heart :) Thank you, at least I know how it looks when it's finished.

Detailed, realistic, and visceral.  If I think about it too much, my heart will hurt.
