Sacred Sundays

Lately my weekends have been consumed by art. No complaints here! Between custom pieces and preparing for the upcoming art show (July 30th), I have my hands full. I consider my weekends sacred, and use my time quite deliberately. However, last night I found myself alone on a Saturday night, not quite ready to paint but unsure of what to do with myself. Luckily a friend who knows me well invited me out for a little adventure…

This is a panorama of the amazing skies last night. We did a small hike out to some local bluffs, and watched the sun go down. I also brought my sketch book, but didn’t have time to do much before I lost the light of day…


I’m happy to say the inspiration stayed with me today and I’ve managed to finish the custom pup I started 3 weeks ago. Introducing “Cajun The Defender”…

Along with him I also used this sacred Sunday to finish “Gateway” a painting for the next Jasper Series (and show). Plus I improvised on another large canvas, and decided to begin a large “energy landscape” this one has the full mountain range.

Feeling pretty excited about gathering the Jasper paintings together again. There will now be 7 paintings on display (5 for sale)! Plus new line drawings! Speaking of which, if you are in the area be sure to check out “An Intimate Evening of Art” a fundraiser for The Northumberland Players theatre camp summer programs. Tickets are only $15 and I have donated my “Three Sisters” line drawing to the silent auction! Please e-mail for tickets or more info.

Hope you’ve all been enjoying your weekend, and don’t forget to mark your calendar for our show “Earth & Sky” July 30th!

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.
