Fashion Centered Meditating Diva – Whimsical Greeting Card by Joana Miranda

This is what I wish I had been doing all week…

Josephine meditates for blog

But instead I was running back and forth to Lincoln Center playing rehearsals and 6 performances (12 different pieces in all!) with New York City Ballet.  However, the moments I stole here and there to render this illustration gave me true happiness and a sense of being in the moment.  Creating your own inner peace…what could be better than that?

The card version is now available in my shop at Etsy.

  1. Wonderful detail! Your technique is getting so sophisticated, IMHO. BTW, if you haven’t already seen it, take a look at the photo of Edo, Dennis and Mark, posted on my FB wall. Not sure who took it, but it is sort of a character study……has caused great amusement at parties, lately.

    • Hi Helen,

      Thanks so much! I’m sort of getting detail obsessed…and each illustration presents a new fun challenge. I think my jewelry rendering skills are always simmering just under the service. I did see (and like!) the photo of Dennis standing with Edo while Mark “photo-bombed” in the background. It cracked me up!

      I hope you are doing well and looking forward to your time off.
