Another attempt at black... My resource was a photo of a friend’s lab, who proved to be a very patience model. I did not intend to paint her as a “senior dog” (as some who have seen the painting have suggested) but the sand on her nose seemed to suggest a lighter snout. I always print a copy of my visuals in both color and black and white so I that I can check my values - my lights and darks.
As an artist I have be a decision maker, and I decided that instead of trying to manipulate the values, to leave the painting as is, even after the critiques. The painting is obviously is not an exact replica of the visual, but I do think she has a sweet face, and perhaps someone with an aging lab will identify with the painting?
I have also decided that with what I’ve learned, I am going to redraw this pup, and paint her a second time and maybe ever a third. I am going to experiment with frisket (masking fluid) and or apply white gouache to replicate the sand, and or leave it out all together, and paint the snout darker for perhaps a more representative painting. I think I can do it better, but it’s all in the practice and “putting miles on the brush.” Thank you my patient companion. #thursdaythoughts ?
Puede que ya te hayas enterado que me lesioné hace un par de semanas impartiendo una clase de yoga dinámico. Fue justo al inicio, durante el primer adho mukha o perro abajo: "Poco a poco, estiramos las piern...aaaahhh ahhh" debieron de ser mis instrucciones hasta que se hizo un silencio tenso. Tan tenso como mi tendón de Aquiles, harto de que mi gemelo tirara de él sin piedad. ¿Quieres saber por qué me pasó esto? Lee mi último post en el enlace de mi bio😥😣
Here we go with day 4 of the #getstretchyeveryday challenge by @getstretchy @actionjacquelyn 😃 today we have the #forwardfold pose ❣️ I always wanted to achieve the flexibility to hug my legs, when I was a child I did ballet for years but I wasn’t very consistent so I was never been able to do this pose. Now with yoga my hip flexors open so damn much and.. one dream come true. Next step➡️splits 😻 #nevergiveuponyou
Move with LOVE с Нели Насева! 💕 Това е специалният клас, който ще се проведе на български език по време на йога фестивала Udaya Live на 19 август (неделя) от 16 ч. 💕
С този клас във виняса стил плавно ще надграждаме позите в непрестанен поток, за да постигнем динамично преминаване през дъх, осъзнато движение и тишина. Мантрата на класа е Любов и всяко наше движение ще бъде водено от усещането за любов към себе си, тялото си и всички около нас. Класът ще бъде зареждащ, за да остави у нас дълго усещането от Фестивала за вдъхновение и сила.
Hot summer days call for images of cool icy snow. ❄
In other news, it's that exciting time of the year and i'm slowly and surely getting buried deep under from the mountain of work coming in. 😵

Do not think that enlightenment is going to make you special, it’s not.
If you feel special in any way, then enlightenment has not occurred.
I meet a lot of people who think they are enlightened and awake simply because they have had a very moving spiritual experience. .
They wear their enlightenment on their sleeve like a badge of honor. .
They sit among friends and talk about how awake they are while sipping coffee at a cafe. .
The funny thing about enlightenment is that when it is authentic, there is no one to claim it. .
Enlightenment is very ordinary; it is nothing special. .
Rather than making you more special, it is going to make you less special. It plants you right in the center of a wonderful humility and innocence. Everyone else may or may not call you enlightened, but when you are enlightened the whole notion of enlightenment and someone who is enlightened is a big joke. .
I use the word enlightenment all the time; not to point you toward it but to point you beyond it. Do not get stuck in enlightenment. .
