Two Days In Jasper

Oh the joys of creation!

Preparing for a private art show has certainly given me the motivation needed to paint. I purchased 7 canvases in September, after my trip to Alberta, with the idea of a show in mind. I finally completed the four “mini” canvases this week (8×8 inches), but am still working on 3 larger paintings, and the show is less then 3 weeks away.

This has been a magical process for me; the first works of art I have ever created so organically. Each one takes on a life of it’s own, and although I have an idea in mind at the start, I am never sure how the ending will unfold- and I have never been happier with results. I believe without the expectation for the finished piece, it has made the process much more enjoyable. It’s an exploration, and wonderful learning experience as an artist.

The style that has resulted from this series has had wonderful feedback, and I even have a custom order in the works. This is something I would love to do more of in the future.

Feel free to explore the art world with me on Facebook at Jennifer Anne Burke.

Yogini since I was 17. Certified yoga instructor since I was 24. Totaling over 20 years of experience. Thousands of hours of practice, teaching, learning, sharing, loving, growing. I believe yoga needs to be made accessible to all people, even if that means simply practicing breath work. My business is named "The Gentle Way of Hatha" because from my personal experience it is the gentle practice that has been the most liberating, and what I wish to share with others. The essence of yoga: inner peace. Finding your calm in the chaos of life. Artist my whole life. Failed OCAD (well I didn't really give it a chance, I dropped out after one semester). Continue to create regardless. Check out to view my work. I love to travel, and hope to make it to Iceland in 2020 for an art adventure.
