"I love road trips. You get into this Zen rhythm; throw the sense of time out the window" - Miriam Toews
Our Art-to-Go leggings tell stories. In this case, the large Texas Road Trip ( 8' tall x 9' wide x 2" thick mixed media on canvas) painting was a commissioned piece meant to tell the story of driving through the great state of Texas. Texas is the birthplace of the Art-to-Go concept - long ago, we started out in a small store front studio in Dallas before much later relocating to California - and road tripping was one of the most iconic experiences you could have there. When people road trip across America, they often talk about wishing to avoid Texas. They want things to see and they want a lot of towns they can stop into.
But to us, the road trip is about one thing - THE ROAD.
Texas has such a surreal landscape. The vistas are spectacular and the fact that you can drive long, long distances without seeing civilization is food for the wandering soul. In this painting, you see the state being held up on a billboard. You get the sense of a wide open landscape within a wide open landscape of mesas and the plateau. The sky is huge and the land goes on forever in either direction, and in craving a road trip, you are craving more of that.
A road trip across Texas is satisfying for the human need for space and quiet and time, it gives you the chance to see and feel the vast world that exists outside your everyday life.
In creating these yoga leggings, we want to bring this iconic experience into your everyday life. This sense of freedom that comes from a road trip doesn't need to be reserved for long, nomadic trips. A road trip can be an hour-long commute, or even a morning trip to your favorite beach, park or yoga studio.
These leggings remind us that the Zen we get from the road trip can come with us and stay alive in our everyday lives.
To get a pair of your own high quality yoga leggings with this vibrant art, go to our store for both offerings, Capri style & long version. Also available in cool men's leggings.
