Soul Dancer

Soul Dancer

I just finished this painting, and I am loving the COLORS that are coming out in the work right now. Spring time how I love you! It is as if a riotous rumba has happened on my painting palette and in my paintings in progress. I have been looking at Indian textiles and patterns, and thinking of exotic far away steamy lands while also rereading Eat Pray Love before bed each night, which is really just fueling my fire. This is one of my favorite books, I love following along on the author's journey of self discovery. The realizations that she has about herself along the way, as well as how she is able to articulate them in her writing, astound me. In the "pray" section of the book, while she is at an ashram in India, she talks about her Meditation practice in such a straightforward and simple way, which I am fascinated by as she is really talking about the depths of her soul. The way she describes the state of deep meditation that she attains makes me think of a soul dancing. A Soul Dancer. Prints of this new painting are available here in my shop.
I am so excited for the Eat Pray Love movie to be released later on this year, the movie looks so great in this trailer!


Thank you to Mimi Bird for mentioning my print Haven as one of her Friday Favorites today on her sweet blog.
Happy Weekending to you! I'll be posting another installment of our "before and after" home series soon!

I don't even know what to say about that before and after. You guys had some serious vision. Just a stunning transformation.

I also LOVED with all caps every word of Eat Love Pray. Can't wait for the movie. And your Sole Dancer painting is exactly where I am right now in terms of color. I just want to climb inside your painter's world right this very moment.

I love this painting and I am very excited that Eat Pray Love is coming out, too! I had almost forgotten until I read your post.
