This week, I stay in Seattle to finish preparation for my upcoming Art Show!
I am so excited to share my work. I finished sealing a painting, finished another painting, and started one today. I've been at the studio since 8:30 this morning.
It is quite fun that I have the opportunity to work as an artist at many levels. Sometimes the work is as simple as creating stick figures to illustrate yoga poses. This is actually how I plan my classes, as well. I map out the class in stick figures so that I can focus my attention on the group of students, and not worry about notes. In fact, I usually plan the class, and never refer to the notes, but it helps me prepare mentally a toolkit around an intention for the practice for the day, so the work is not wasted. And, I have a journal full of illustrated yoga classes, as well as movement classes.
