"Broke the Yolk"-- 16" x 20" Painting on Stretched Canvas
I call this one "Broke the Yolk.” It started off feeling sorta claustrophobic and sterile- A minimalistic yellow ochre circle with off-white all around and a faint lil black outline. I walked away, frustrated and unsatisfied... and came back, grabbed colors i wouldn’t normally work with and pushed more and more paint around until it... I dunno... actually felt like “something.” I wasn’t sure what my subconscious was trying to say. (Hi, I’m Laura, and I’m perpetually stuck in my head)
But, then it dawned on me!!!! As y’all know, I’ve been really connected to my yoga practice lately... and the word yoga actually means "yolk" or "union.” As broken as that concept feels in the world right now... this life inside can still spill out into something absolutely beautiful.
