Raw, Open, Freedom~

Hello friends! I don't know about you but, art is therapy for me. I can't hide from myself during the creative process. Sometimes I don't even realize that I have something to say. Other times it's the best coping mechanism I have for getting through a rough patch. My journal is a truer reflection of me then looking into a mirror. It's a bit deep for a Monday, I know. Please don't run away! :)

I've been thinking lately about how fleeting life is. Why do we spend so much time building all of these walls around ourselves? What would happen if we dug deep, really deep and put it all out there? Would it really be so bad? If for a change we were honest and instead of saying "I'm fine" when asked we told the truth and said "I'm a bit broken right now". We all have bumps and bruises, why not share them? It's a radical idea, right? Thanks for listening.

You are brave in your vulnerability. It's amazing to be honest and open with others, and with yourself. That is true beauty...

Steph, I always love coming to your blog to see what you have done. Your work is not only inspiring but so open and honest and I always leave richer for having come. I think it is easy to say "I'm fine" even when you're not, I tend to hide behind this and even say it to myself even though it may not always be true. It comes from the idea that we must always be brave and often it is only in our art that we can truly be honest with the world and ourselves. This is a beautiful piece, thank you for sharing it.
