In the twilight's delicate embrace,
Light and dark find a tender space,
Dusk and dawn, they gently chase,
A creation of beauty, face to face.
The owl, the wolf, and butterflies unite,
In nature's grand and mystic rite.
For as the butterflies take to the air,
The owl and wolf, they both declare:
"Change is constant, as nature's art,
Transform and listen to your heart.
Embrace the wisdom of the night,
And in your own life, take flight."
In a forest deep, where moonlight gleams,
Where ancient trees guard secret dreams,
There reigns a queen of noble mien,
With antlered crown, she is unseen.
Her antlers reach for heavens high,
A sacred touch upon the sky.
A symbol of her regal might,
In silvery glow, they gleam at night.
The creatures of the night and day,
In her presence, they softly sway,
For she's the guardian of their home,
In her presence, all creatures roam.
Open your heart to the whispers within,
And let your inner magic truly begin.
In moments of stillness, it softly sings,
Guiding you to uncover your hidden wings.
Embrace the colors that paint your soul,
Embrace the stories that make you whole.
Unleash the wonders only you can create,
For in your magic, the world finds its fate.
Embrace the dreams that long to be,
And set them free, unbounded and free.
Trust in yourself, for you hold the key,
To unlock the magic, to set it free.
Shadow in the mirror, you're a mirror of my soul,
In your depths, my true self, you faithfully extol.
Though you're just an image, a reflection so clear,
You hold my secrets and dreams, year after year.
The self is not a static thing,
It is ever-changing and evolving.
It is through the encounter with the other
That we become who we are meant to be.
In shadows' dance, I tread the night,
With lanterns bright, a seeker's flight,
A quest within, a silent rhyme,
I wander through the depths of time.
Each flickering flame, a guiding star,
Unveiling truths from lands afar,
The echoes of my soul they trace,
In search of meaning's subtle grace.
Amidst the whispers of the breeze,
I chase the echoes, melodies,
Reflections of a distant shore,
A quest that leads to something more.
Beneath the moon's enchanting gleam,
I journey on, a timeless dream,
A portrait of my essence, true,
I'm out with lanterns, seeking you.
A creature born of stars, a cosmic child,
Her soul untamed, her spirit running wild.
The constellations in her eyes ignite,
A magic of dreams in the moonlight's light.
Be kind to your shadow...
"Her colored pencil works show her genuine interest and love for all animals. Andrea's color palate reflects a moonlit night in the desert. Her works are delicate in both color and the hand she uses to create these pieces. Andrea's deep connection with nature and all of its creatures is obvious when looking at these images."
"The wooded path to grandma’s house will look very different through the eyes of this week’s Featured Artist Andreahrnjak. Notorious fairy tale villains take on a magical new luster and — before you know it — the big bad wolf isn’t so bad and the wicked witch isn’t so wicked. Andreahrnjak’s art is filled with whimsical visions of wolves, witches, and phases of the moon. She describes them as “wild but delicate, witchy and tempting” and they offer a refuge from the outside world...Her artwork shines brightly with this love of nature and is a unique combination of the freedom she finds in the woods and the “old Slavic witchy fairy tales and myths” that she grew up with as a child."
"Los dibujos de Andrea Hrnjak retoman la calma y la conexión olvidada entre los hombres y animales, todos del mismo origen y acompañantes de la evolución son caracteres en cohabitación de los temperamentos acicalados por el plástico de la modernidad. Son aullido de bosque que se eleva durante la noche para arrullarse de luna menguante y estrellas, estrellas que tatúan los cuerpos de sus cuestionados. Son anuncio de lobos y cuervos, de búhos sabios que posan en hombros mientras lanzan sus solemnes augurios. Hay poesía, hay metáfora visual."
"Andrea Hrnjak is a Vienna artist and illustrator with a love for wild animals and a penchant for the icy girls. Her works are wonderfully beguiling, evocative and sensual. Her works are a window into a world we once knew, where the union between human and animal is harmonious and calm, a radiant and carefree spirit that we crave today. Nature has its own rhythms and orders. The images of chilly high mountains and tempting misty nights remind us that the world doesn’t just revolve around human competitions, they invoke a modesty in us."
