Standing Feather is my Name and I Am a Spiritual Warrior in Tree Pose


It has been a bit quiet on the art-creating-front. The last 3 months were seriously challenging due to health issues, my body asked for most of my energy, attention and time. But thanks to my own determination and willpower, drastic diet changes, my daily yoga & meditation practice and the love and support from some dear friends and my beloved partner, I feel quite a bit better now and are able to work again. What better way than to mark this achievement with the showing of my new, only just finished a few hours ago, art piece:


And so it is! And so I am!
