This painting of a woman in the yoga pose Pada Hastasana, receiving a loving lick from her cow friend, is inspired by and painted in support of the animal sanctuary Santuário Vale de Rainha in Brazil that rescues animals and has the mission of spreading love among all beings.
The illustration is part of my series Art Helping Animals, which means that I will be donating 50 per cent of its profits to the sanctuary to support their kind and compassionate work.
The illustration has been hand-drawn with ink on textured, cold-pressed watercolour paper (300 gsm) and hand-finished with a golden circle, using real metal pigments, to highlight the magical beauty of the bond between us humans and other animals when we choose compassion and kindness.
