Amy Jarvis is a painter whose keen sense of color and lighting gives her work a recognized grace and emotion. In addition to commissioned pet portraits, Amy recently completed a series of nine oil paintings of mythical women from across continents and throughout the centuries, weaving fact, fiction and legend, that were featured in a solo show titled: The Mythics. Amy’s yoga practice keeps her grounded and connected to a creative life and she says it gives her a deeper way of listening and seeing. During our conversation Amy and I discuss boundaries and sandhill cranes and ponder the question: do men wear leggings?

Steve White Yoga Pranayama video. Calming, centering and balancing breath work for the nervous system.
1. Nature is like sketchbook in real time; it makes you feel like it’s going to be ok.
2. You have to interact if you want an audience. (You have to be a friend to get a friend.)
3. "You need to work with the medium that works with how fast you think and paint." (source unknown)
4. If you want to get to the next level, then it’s time to put the phone down.
5. The universe will rearrange itself to help you live out your dreams if they come from a sincere place.
