Awhile back, I blogged about Finding My Edge at Carmichael Yoga. Since then, the studio has expanded. It now offers classes in mat yoga, aerial yoga and aerial silks. (To learn more about this wonderful space, click here)
Recently, Cecilia Sandoval––Studio Manager Extrordinaire––offered me an opportunity I couldn't refuse.
"You know," she said, "Our students and teachers just love doing poses next to you paintings in the main studio. How would you feel about painting something for that big empty wall in the aerial room?"
All she asked was:
"Can it be big?"
"Can it reflect our logo colors?"
"Um ... sure, if you want to use gold leaf ..."
Talk about a no brainer!
I wish I could take credit for the name, but I can't. As I was slapping paint and gold leaf on top of these two 3x5' and 4x5' canvases and debating whether the Buddha's eyes should be open or closed, my Muse chimed in. She does that a lot.
"How 'bout making one eye open and one shut, sort of a yin/yang thing. And I've got the perfect name..."
