This painting was created for The Peace Project’s annual call for artistic “Visions of Peace.” The mission was to create my own unique interpretation to their 2014 theme “Peace Starts Here.”
So in creating my Vision of Peace, I started with drawing on my own my personal experience I’ve felt the most peaceful when I feel LOVED. I’ve also experienced the life-changing power of yoga, and this piece draws on the beautiful mirrored reflection of partner yoga, which can inspire feelings of sacred union between people.
Here in this painting, two yoginis face each other, share love between them, and from that healing experience of love, the brilliant light of peace is powerfully emanated outwards. I believe that energy with this sort of positive charge can benefit others around the world in ways unseen, through the power of prayer.
The more love we share, the more peace will grow, and perhaps one day heal the world.
Interestingly, the original painting was purchased the very next day after it’s creation, to the first person who saw it! Luckily, archival prints are still available here at my Etsy shop.
To purchase a 12″ x 12″ wood panel print of this painting, visit my listing on The Whole 9 Gallery Peace Shop. Artists such as myself are donating all proceeds of these peace panels to The Peace Project, which is currently building new homes for Typhoon Haiyan victims in the Philippines.
