Revival of the Arts

I finally broke through my art-funk last week, when I had a night alone and decided to work in the oil paints I’ve avoided forever. I used some of my most simple beach photographs and applied that simplicity to the paintings:

 

I finished two acrylics from my Ontario collection, and continue to work on my “Iceland” landscapes, all of the pieces are finally coming together in a way that pleases me.

 

This whole journey has me weening away from acrylics, with the intention to move primarily into oil painting. This is something I have been wanting to do for a very long time, but did not have the space, patience, or ventilation.  With weather improving I can open windows, and I have re-organized space to accommodate these new projects in a clean and safe way. With that being said… stay tuned for the next big project: 8 new Canadian Landscapes in oils, on birchwood gallery canvas. The canvases are already prepped and waiting!

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 JenniferAnneBurke.com to view my work. I love to travel, and hope to make it to Iceland in 2020 for an art adventure.
