Here is a mixed media version of downward facing dog. Should be up and hanging soon. Just have to figure out how I want to frame it. Sorry I couldn’t capture the colors better for the site.
I had to get some help on this project so I have to thank the people at Garden Gate and Yin Yang Yoga and my mom for their contributions. Couldn’t have done it without you. 🙂
I’ve been working on a couple of projects for the past few months and one of them is for Yin Yang Yoga. I have a wall there that I like to rotate art on. Right now there are portraits of some of my colleagues up. However I want to switch it with someone doing yoga.
The piece is inspired by Fred Tomaselli. He does work with collage and currently has works up at the American Art Museum in DC. His works are quite large and colorful. In addition they have a lot to look at. So hopefully it’s easy to see why someone would be inspired by him.
Here’s one of my preliminary sketches.
Here’s the very beginning of my project.
Here’s where I am at now. I’m basically figuring out the background. It’s like a puzzle but I am making up the pieces.
I wanted to do something for Yin Yang Yoga and Wellness, where I work as a massage therapist. I’ve done a couple projects for them but this was focused on yoga. The woman in child’s pose is the first painting that I did. It is based on a picture of the owner of the yoga studio. After I did it she asked me to make cards so I made a couple more paintings so that I’d have a set. All the images are on sale at etsy now and possibly on amazon though I haven’t checked there. And of course Yin Yang sells them too.
