Art Journal Peek | Unapologetic

Christlike communications are expressed in tones of love rather than loudness. They are intended to be helpful rather than hurtful. They tend to bind us together rather than to drive us apart. They tend to build rather than to belittle.

Art Journal Detail: Pink Face

More naked than I dare to be in the world, this comes out on the page.

Wide eyes, with nothing to hide. A heart in search of love, and meaning.

A soul, filled with darkness and light.

A bald head, naked and unapologetic.

Hello me.

I return to my journal, and my favorite colors. The thing that comes out, as so often, is a self portrait. Another one, another aspect of me, another image of the whole.

Art Journal Detail: Hello Paint Brushes!

I find comfort in my worn paint brushes and paint on paper. Together they fill my head with silence.

I crave the silence of mindfulness, of flow, of the autumn wind in the trees.

This week I have also been writing out my thoughts, journaling like a mad woman. I crave words, and deep thoughts. Communication and letting go.

Thanks for letting me share.

Stay tuned. The sun is behind the clouds, I just know it.

  3. Hanna- I love the vulnerability here today…I appreciate your faith in that the sun is behind the clouds…somedays that’s all we can hang on to! You are brave and courageous to share your self-portraits…mine tend to be more abstract or symbol driven.

  4. Oh yes oh yes oh yes! Isn’t all our art self portraiture? I love the words you share here and your journal… yummilicious. All that pink!

    Here’s to the world being infected with more of that unapologetic atmosphere you live within. How inspiring you are!!

  5. I couldn’t post a comment on your latest post because it said I was logged in as you and I tried to log out but then it wanted me to log in as you.
    It was very odd.
    However, I would love to hear what you think of the Divergent series when you’re done!

  6. As for this post, LOVE your latest aspect of self. And the way you characterize the silence in your head. really cool
