Playing with wax

Now that my eldest is in Kindergarten (agh!) I have more time to fool around in my studio with new media. So lately I've been exploring with encaustic painting, which is basically painting with wax and sometimes adding in collage bits. And hooray, I can use Beeswax!! You know I love beeswax. 
Here's a look at a piece I created over the weekend while the kindergartener painted his own masterpiece next to me. He wanted to get his studio time in, too. Ha! Such a precious moment for this mama.

Exciting News! New Yoga Painting!

It's been a long time coming. I've finally been able to create a new yoga painting! I'm so excited to share it with everyone. I've long wanted to include a handstand, and this was a great variation.

So what do you think?? Some folks tell me, "I can't get that image... I can't do that pose!" Balderdash! Nonsense! Surround yourself with where you want to go, what you want to see, and who you want to be.  You'll get there.

Namaste, Y'all!

The Final Pilates Painting

Here's the final image in the series I created for Mary. She suggested this pose called Balance Control. I absolutely loved the lines of the body, it creates such a beautiful shape.

Capturing the Blissful Lotus

A lovely and freshly certified yoga teacher in Syracuse asked me to create my dancer pose with a "blissful lotus" in its hand. Such a lovely image.  Here's a peek at the new logo for Blissful You Yoga!

New Pilates Painting

If you've been following my blog, or my instagram account for that matter, you know I've been working on a series of Pilates paintings for Mary. She brings me beautiful poses and I express them in watercolor and ink. The newest one is the Shoulder Roll-down on the Cadillac. For you Pilates fans, here's a video of what the exercise looks like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tVmJ36ZqJ30&app=desktop And here's my version of it!
