Well, I’ve gone two weeks without posting any mandala images, that’s all I can stand! Honestly, I don’t want this to become a blog by “that crazy mandala lady” but I really am into them lately! As with most of my projects I just jump in and do them and then later on realize I need to figure out how to present them. I had several of the earlier pieces matted so that they can be put into a standard size frame (8×10, 11×14) and then finally made a trip out one day and found that they sell frames that are pre-matted with square openings. I bought several of those on sale last week (plus found a few here at home that I had put aside for another project). Between the two slightly different size/styles they fit several pieces I had already made and now I know what the dimensions are I can work within those sizes. I dropped off six pieces to be included in my show at Healing Arts Indy, I am excited to have them hanging in a gallery space! Five of the six pieces that were hung are shown in this blog post. Want to know which ones they are? You’ll have to come see – the opening reception is from 6 to 10 p.m. this Friday night, I would love to see you there!
I am showing the rest of the images without the matting/frame around them so you can get a better look at the details.
I really had fun with the first piece, I hadn’t tried using any text in these images and I thought “live life” was both a good message and an easy to use pair of words. (Although now the more I look at it I see “life live” instead!) Can you think of other words or sayings that might look nice on a piece?
Until next time,
