Green Thumb Yoga

My last year gym membership has got over in Dec 2011. Since I was too lazy, till now I have not renewed it..Just enjoying this gym timing (Harshi's small lil school time) these days. However Subodh (Hubby) couldn't spare my lazy happiness ;)....Being an AOL (Art of Leaving) follower, he is just behind me to at least start with yoga inside home to not to distort my figure..;).
I always hate working under someones pressure...though it is making a code/design during SAP days under my manager or thesis making under my guide during IIT days or learning new recipe with timeline under my mom/MIL or working out yoga under the guidance of hubby :). However, while learning the types of Pranayams from Subodh, I have started enjoying his attention and slowly started loving his indirect care for my health :)...Yes now a days, I am waking up early morning not for making breakfast, lunchbox but for doing Yoga for myself. I just love this pampered time of half an hour for myself. So thought of sharing this feeling through this Green Thumb Yoga painting with you guys :)

I have made a tree of life concept of warli in this painting. Being a nature lover I wanted to make a green tree since long time and just fulfilled my wish in this way :). For the colour combination concept such as dark and light shades of green for leaves and red coluor for flowers, I was inspired by Patricia's one of the post about wall art in Madhya Pradesh 
http://coloursdekor.blogspot.com/2009/10/wall-art-madhya-pradesh.html
The tree shows the togetherness between two different trees such as X-mas tree shaped tree (light green) upon which money plant like small tree (dark green with red budding flowers) is crawling. They are so much engrossed with each other that it is very difficult to identify them. Leaving it's foot print on the trunk of main tree (half circles painted with blue on trunk)




As a beginner in Yoga, I have just started doing types of Pranayamas. However I have drawn the warli boys doing yogasanas under this tree. I wish I could also get a chance to do yoga under a Green tree like this sometime...:)


Dimensions: 58cm H x 30 cm W
I have drawn painting on canvas using acrylic colours. So was it refreshing, did it give a green soothing to your eyes? Do share with me about it :)

  1. The Warli yoga poses are really nice... Reminds me that I need to get back into my yoga routine too... Just so difficult to keep that habit.. It is nice to see that u are having a niche blog for Warli... Looking forward to seeing more of your work.

    Incidentally my wife's first attempt at Warli pot painting was also inspired by one of Patricia's post... It is a small world and good things sure get noticed.
