Mary Harju & Jasper Johal

There is a bit of a yoga/dance theme here today.    :-)
Out of sharing discoveries with others, I came across yet another one! I do enjoy exchanging inspirations with fellow artists and friends, and by passing along the name and work of NYC painter Mary Harju (Mary Harju Figurative Painting)...

...I was directed in return to Jasper Johal Photography (Jasper Johal Photography), which exhibits yoga, dance, fashion and nude figurative work. Having a history as a ballet dancer and coming from a yoga-conscious family, I was intrigued.
*Check both out at their respective links.

Scott Eaton

I have been browsing someone recently recommended to me after being introduced to a work of theirs, and am thoroughly impressed with the aesthetic, the method, and the results. Check out Scott Eaton's beautiful, empowering sculpture here: Scott Eaton
Here are some sample images from Scott Eaton's website for your insight:

Some Gestural Design...

I have doodled up some gestures recently on assignment for a local illustrator.

I love playing around with the concept of mermaids, and have been drawing and playing with the aesthetic of them since I started at the age of three. These are some lounging gestures that I managed in my sketchbook, using myself for reference.
