This painting was inspired by the magnificent song ‘Shehada’ by Quiet Child. The song is about someone who survived a mass execution. Not a light theme to work with. The title of the painting is derived from the lyrics.

I used acrylic paint, acrylic liquid paint, acrylic ink and gel medium.

Listen to the song on Bandcamp

Many memories will haunt me all my life
I’m tired, I’m lonely, but I’m alive
Then they lined us up in a row
“You go here…”
I’m hungry, I’m sallow, but I’m alive

To the shots ringing clear I fainted away
Then I awoke, surrounded yet alone

Every time I look to the east I say your name
I’m tired, I’m lonely, but I’m alive
Every time I think things will change, they stay the same
I’m hungry, I’m sallow, but I’m alive
