smdreamThis is a painting I did almost two decades ago (!). I recently came across this quote that I think fits it perfectly:

“We are asleep. Our Life is a dream. But we wake up sometimes, just enough to know that we are dreaming.”
– Ludwig Wittgenstein

Untitled, oil on canvas, 2000

One of the most frustrating things for me as an artist is that my technical abilities don’t allow me to properly convey my vision- I am limited by my skills and constantly working to improve them. My friend Chris introduced me to “The Ballad of Mulan” years ago and I did a painting based on the line about her “cloudlike hair”. I had that line in mind again and wanted this goddess to feel ethereal and translucent, but she came out more restrained and heavy. My very wise husband (otherwise known as the rational one) advised me to not tear this one up, so, I am setting her aside for now and appreciating it as is and maybe I will revisit her in the future and try again.

Liberation Through Pranayama & Mudra

Mudras, News, PAINTINGS

This is a fantastic article walking you through the benefits of breathing and mudras in your practice. It features Pranidhana, one of the mudras from the Mudras for Awakening the Energy Body deck that I illustrated (available from US Games Inc, Amazon and local booksellers such as the Tattered Cover in Denver).
