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

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?

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.
