Birthday headstand in my studio

Birthday headstand in my studio

Yoga has become important to me. The balance that I learn in Yoga improves my "balance" in the process of creating my artwork as well.

One way my 65th birthday, (September '05), was celebrated was by inviting David to my studio to capture this moment of my Yoga practice when I was practicing Sirsasana/headstand.

The inspiration for this was as follows: I knew a man (when I was a child growing up in California), a ceramic artist named Otto Natzler. He practiced headstand and on his 70th birthday he sent a card celebrating this big day with an image of himself practicing Sirsasana. It made a big impression on me. I hope to update this picture of me when I turn 70 with another headstand photo.
