This piece was inspired by my five years living in Nosara, Costa Rica. Nosara is surrounded by nature and has a strong yoga culture. The woman in this painting is surrounded by giant blossoms and butterflies. She finishes her yoga practice and gestures namaste. Namaste is a term that means “I bow to you” or “the divine in me honors the divine in you.” In this case, she is connecting with nature, honoring the divine in the wonders of the natural world.
