I think I need to paint and soon. I promised that I would do something wild and free today, but this doesn’t really live up to that promise. The idea to do something wild and free came from a conversation about children’s art, and how they approach the page without fear or trepidation. But today was a day full of weighty grown-up responsibilities and phone-calls. Not so wild, not so free. The inspiration is a photo of Beryl Birch from her book “Power Yoga,” which is really all about Ashtanga yoga. I begin to appreciate the simple lines of Ustrasana.
