Mandala - WIP



I am fascinated with Mandalas. Not only do I enjoy looking at them (google Mandalas and you will see what I mean), but also creating a mandala seems to be a spiritual process.  This one is 4" x 4" and will be mounted on cradle board when finished. It's ink and colored pencils on Stonehenge paper.

Update on the dragons...

Here is a very depressed dragon. I am finally working on it again, but my mind keeps giving me different endings to this tale.

I might have decided on a title though:
"DRAGON PRESS"


ACEO anyone?

I am also working on other things - what I call 'high intensity' trading cards, but because of the work involved these are really ACEO's  (Art Cards, Editions and Originals) and will be available for sale. An ACEO follows the same size guidelines as an ATC, 2.5x3.5 inches.


Strike when the Muse is hot!

I have been busy over the Christmas holidays. Actually, my holidays are now a semi retirement. I managed to take extra time over Christmas/New Years and I am having so much time playing with my inner child (and Nissy, my muse and studio dragon), that I sometimes get the desire not to go back to work at all. But I will return because I love my job and it gets me out of the house :)

I have been playing with ATC cards and got quite a few new ones. They are so handy when you want to try new paper, new pens and pencils, or just to play with ideas. If you are interested in trading, please send me a message or email me, I would be happy to trade ATC's all over the world.

Would the images in my head please calm down...

I am at somewhat of a cross roads with my art. This is one of the studies I just completed. So many things are going through my mind right....  word art, monochrome images, pencil art, minimalism, mandalas, meditative art, Celtic knot work, working bigger, working smaller .... and on and on and on...













"Mandala Turquoise"

10x10 colored pencil, solvent and ink

Gallery Show Update - SOLD!

"Tree of Life" found a new loving home. It sold opening night, but for now it's still hanging in the show until the end of July, so there is still time to see it in person.
