Fib's Open Mic
Did this from a sketch made during the Sketchcrawl last November (blogged here). This place has such a cool feel. There's always something going on; open mic, movie night, live music. The painting over the table (which isn't really there) is of a carving I picked up at the JJ market in Bangkok. I wanted to bring something home that carried a bit of the serenity I found tucked in between the chaos and the angry demonstrations in Thailand. I love this little yogini. I have another half-done painting that I think she may find herself in. She sits beside my bed, and is one of the first things I see in the morning, reminding me to breath and relax into the day.
Speaking of yoga, I'm in a good yoga groove right now. I signed up at www.myyogaonline.com and have been doing a different practice pretty much every day for about a month now. It's great, because I don't have to leave Yogi at home, and there's no travel time, and at about $10 a month, it's pretty bargainous. The videos are good quality, and there's a huge range to choose from. If you're using streaming video you can use any of them for that $10. You can download the ones you like for a fee, which I did with a few of them so I can practice outside when I'm camping. The Jivamukti ones are my fave at the moment.
This other painting is one I did quite a while ago. There were parts of it I liked, and parts that made me wince when I looked at it, so I just 'adjusted' a few things. I'm much happier with it now.
