Yoga Journal - Lead With Your Heart
Love makes the world go 'round.
Love is all you need.

In time for February's Valentine's Day and the season of love, is the new issue of Yoga Journal in which I was fortunate enough to get a call to do their feature story.

I had originally wanted the opener to be a darker and sadder piece. You may be able to get a sense of what I was thinking in the thumbnail. I thought that starting off the feature with a dark brooding non-love piece would be a nice contrast to the happier 'love-ly' ones later on in the article. 

In the end, lighter hearts prevailed and I eased up on the mood of the opener.

The article is about the practice of Bhakti yoga, which is about love; about healing yourself and filling your heart up. Two of the sections within the article are about filling your life with love through song and nature which ended up being the focus of the artwork.
