Mandala – “By the River” 2017 This mandala is the only color piece I have created to date. Way back when art was my major, I enjoyed using acrylic paint. I figured I’d start painting color backgrounds and creating the mandala on top. Another plan came into fruition though, especially in regard to the “background.” This was supposed to be a “cool funky” background not a bunch of different patterned squares… but hey a creation happens that way. This piece was not signed yet because it is not yet finished. I always know when one is finished and it is then signed. It is an interesting ongoing work because I can only return to it at certain points in my life.
