Working in the Studio / by Karen Matheis

Steadily working in my studio.  I am currently working on nine large paintings that are scattered throughout my space.  It's rather messy with plates of paint everywhere. 

Blocking out all external "noise,"  I am present, absorbed in the moment of where I am with the painting.  Training in meditation and pranayama ( breathing) in yoga helps me achieve my goals with staying focused in my work. 

So nice to spend these long days painting.  I start my day with an active run in the morning, and end my days with a nice long walk.
