Sunday Moods

I am always an early riser. This morning I got out for groceries at 8am, and tossed Neil Young’s “Prairie Wind” in the CD player… Did it ever set my mood for the day.

“The painter stood, before her work, she looked around everywhere… she saw the pictures and she painted them, picking colours from the air…”

I haven’t painted in awhile. I have dabbled I suppose (tried some knife painting in January, and added some sun-rays to an older Ontario piece I was getting bored with), but I haven’t really felt the urge or inspiration to follow through on anything. I have collected images, thought about new projects; I have all my work laid out, as if I am going to paint but I just don’t get to it.

Listening to that song reminded me that I need to get back to it…


As I returned home, I could see the dark skies over the Lake and decided to run across the road to get some pictures of the moody skies and water (inspiration, right?) – and I couldn’t believe it: Thunder and Lightening! It scared the heck out of me, so I ran home just as fast but I did get a few great shots:


This oddly quiet Sunday morning, and mild February day has definitely triggered something creative in me… whether a result will come out of it I do not yet know… but I like this feeling, I haven’t felt it in a long time.


Wherever you are, I hope you get to enjoy your own unique Sunday Mood! Do something fun.

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.
