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.
8-10-16 “Formless” Something about color vs. black and white really seems to bother me. I can’t wrap my head around it really. This was done in an orange/red sharpie and a fine tip black one.

This vibration continues throughout the entire […]

6/30/16 – “Communication” Clearly I was on a role creating Mandalas during the month of June. I had found a new release and I felt as though I was onto something. I started out with the intention of “communication.” I had no idea how I was going to convey that, but hey, art flows in this medium for me. Midway […]
6-11-16 – “Oasis Amongst Chaos” I finished up this mandala shortly after I had just finished my second one. I was utilizing heavy sketch book paper, pencil and sharpie. I decided to utilize my compass on this one to create the circles. After I created the center (I always start in the center and work my way out” I really […]
