More Mandalove! (Updated)

Occasionally, I indulge my love of symmetry and play with making mandalas and kaleidoscopes.  This form of art is very meditative and calming.
Like these:

 

Sky Dome
Sky Dome
Influenced by the wonderful art of henna with juuuust a touch of art nouveau. This first one, above is called “Sky Dome”

 

 

Below is one I just call “Totem”. I was really going for symmetry here and a slightly tribal feel.

Leaf and Lotus

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Leaf and Lotus” was created from illustrations of leaves in 19th C botanical art.
Or this one below, made from a photo I shot of some vintage pearls:

And…. dreamed up out of my foggy head:

And this, I think is my favorite at the moment:

And this, “Tree of Life and Light” is an old favorite that I would share with the kids!:

Todd Kincannon should grow some empathy & common sense.

Momentary departure from photography for a sec.  This Todd Kincannon tweet occurred 2 days ago and thanks to Steve Marmel, (@Marmel) I saw it this morning.

But 2 days from now, I’m sure I will still be trying to forget this disgusting representative of SC GOP and his complete lack of empathy or even basic decency and common sense.

Pro-gun or not, this is beyond the pale.  How low can our political discourse get? C’mon, people!

Hey Todd! Insensitive much?

The Iceman must Go-eth!

For my friends in northern climes who are literally buried in ice and snow and my southern friends experiencing this unusual cold, and rare wintry precip,    take heart – 36 days til the Spring Equinox! 

I know – 36 seems like A LOT of days right now, so meanwhile, I continue to try to spread light and color for all my fellow S.A.D. sufferers.

Here is today’s offering, and for a look back at some from last winter, here are links to 3 oldies-but-goodies:

Poppy Season

I love the shapes and textures in Poppy blossoms.  The white ones are particularly intriguing to me. Here are a few, lit up by morning sun.

Churchyard Lily in Blue

Another carving, found in the same cemetery as yesterday’s little angel.  This is a work in progress, lots of cutting and coloring, but I like it so far.Stone Lily carving, colored manually.

Churchyard Angels

One of my favorite things to do is explore old cemeteries, as I did for a while yesterday afternoon here in my hometown.  I found this little angel on an 18th C. headstone.  Isn’t she sweet?Churchyard Angel

I found a few other lovely examples but have yet to prep them for display. Watch this space. :)
