|Constance in Garudasana|
The series idea that came to me was painting the spiritual effects of our physical actions. The first painting is more obviously spiritual; my yoga teacher, Constance, in a pose called Garudasana. Garuda is an Eagle, ridden by Lord Vishnu, who sustains the Universe. Garuda is called the "Eater of Serpents". I looked at the pose and I see a lot of twining, which reminds me of a serpent coiling around the body, so I associated it with Kundalini.
