- To celebrate their first anniversary, the studio where I study yoga, Yoga Goodness, is having an artshow on the subject of peace. Several members of our sangha have been invited to display artwork inspired by yoga. In addition, there will be an installation community project of 1000 paper cranes folded by our community in rememberance of those who have lost their lives to gun violence. I will have several paintings in this show, including my latest Animanity oxpecker and giraffe painting, titled, Animanity: Symbiosis. A protion of the proceeds from the sale of my own work from this show will be donated to the families of those who have lost their lives on the "Anti-Poaching Teams" in Africa. The illegal trade of ivory has caused areas of Africa to become literal war zones, and it's not just the elephants that are losing their lives to poachers. So, I have chosen to donate money from the works in this coming show to help the devestated families who have been left behind. I hope you will come out this First Friday, April 1st, 2016, and join us at Yoga Goodness Studio, on the second floor of Riverviews Artspace in downtown Lynchburg from 5:30 PM -8:00 PM for beautiful art and beautiful friends. You can even learn how to fold and string origami paper cranes. You can also see several of my other pieces on display in the Riverviews Co-op Galllery on the ground floor while you are in the building. Hope to see you all there.
