In my recent daily paintings, I did a mini series featuring Lucy, the Yoga Chicken.
What got me started was this illustration of the chicken sitting and meditating. It was particularly a busy day, and I was feeling like a chicken with its head cut off – but wanted to feel calmer.
A friend saw it on Instagram and suggested I do a series of chickens in yoga poses, so I thought, “Why not? That sounds like fun!”
So, for 10 days, I illustrated a chicken in various yoga poses!
I used to be an avid Bikram Yoga (a.k.a. Hot Yoga) practitioner and many of the poses in the series are may favorite from the practice then.
Along the way, I started calling her “Lucy.” It just came to me out of nowhere and I thought it would make a cute name for a chicken 😀
She’s such a good yogini!! 🙂 It relaxes me just to see her in these poses!
Do you practice yoga? What poses are your favorite??
I hope Have a centering day 🙂
