Lotus Flower Workshop

Back in November I ran the Buddha Workshop at Simplicity Yoga. It was a 3 hour mixed-media class in which students started with a blank 8×10 inch canvas and ended up with a beautifully collaged, painted & inked uniquely theirs piece of art. Fun was had by all, and even though it was scheduled for 2 hours, we really needed the 3 hours to really enjoy the process.

I will be running another workshop on February 6th, this time we will be using the lotus flower as our focus. So if you missed out on the first class, you have a second chance! There are still a few spots left. Contact Simplicity Yoga.

Lotus Flower Art

When Simplicity Yoga offered to have my canvases on display at the studio, I started thinking in terms of incorporating spirituality into my art. What blossomed were my Buddha and lotus flower canvases. I enjoy making the petals of the flower out of interesting papers, like glossy, embossed & even newsprint.

Lotus positionIn yoga, the lotus represents the Lotus Pose or Padmasana, where the feet and legs represent the petals of the lotus flower. It opens the hips, strengthens the back and creates flexibility in the knees and is a base pose for meditation, chanting and pranayama (breathing techniques).
