Hana means "flower" or "nose" in Japanese, and as she has a pretty nose and a flower in her hair, I thought Hana was a perfect name for her.
I don't know about you, but I don't always feel beautiful, or believe that I am. I can scare myself when I look in the mirror. Let's just say mornings are not my friend. One of the things I used to tell the children I was teaching, was that we are all beautiful, on the inside and out, because there is no-one else quite like us in the world and that makes us very, very special. Sometimes it seems easier to believe that about other people than ourselves, so I painted Hana, because I figured we could all use a reminder that we are beautiful and to believe in our own beauty.
Please feel free to right click on Hana and save her as a jpeg to your computer. You can print her off and put her near your mirror, so that when the morning isn't your friend either, you can remember that you are completely beautiful, because there is no-one else quite like you walking around on the earth. (All I ask is that you don't use Hana for commercial purposes, printing her onto anything for resale. She is a gift for you.)
