10 years of ashes

"ash wednesday 2016"

it's hard to believe that i've been doing this for 10 years now, but this is my tenth ash wednesday collage, an annual ritual of pausing before lent to consider my own brokenness, and how i can creatively express it. this year i did a kind of photo-negative thing where i reversed my colors in order to emphasize both the darkness of my own brokenness, and the latent hope in the oily ashes. 

here is last year's collage, and then below that you can see thumbnails of the previous eight. 

have a meaningful ash wednesday, and a blessed lent.
