Self Portrait

I sketched this drawing and then used watercolors to enhance it. The butterfly and bird represent freedom. The hearts symbolize self love and acceptance. The horizontal scar across my chest is where my breasts used to reside and the phoenix tattoo symbolizes the fact that I will rise again from the ashes of breast cancer. No matter how cloudy the skies become or tumultuous the waves, I will continue to fight. My life matters!
