Week 22: Wiggle Room

The Wiggle Room mandala is one of a series of 21 asymmetry mandalas created over a 3-week period in autumn 2007. It consists of seven vertical wavy lines and twelve horizontal straight lines. My asymmetry mandalas come about by drawing in-the-moment inspired doodles.

Week 17: Bowling for Sunshine

While taking a studio colored pencil class, where each of us works on our own projects with guidance and evaluation from the instructor and fellow class mates, I decided to play with watercolor pencils. This was my second painting from that experimentation.

Week 7: Garden Delight

This hyperbolic tessellation mandala features turquoise flowers and orange butterflies, with purple bodies and blue orbs on their wings; all of which help to make a garden delightful…hence the name “Garden Delight”. I used fine-point markers to color this version of Garden Delight.

Resurrection Mandala Design

Week 6: Resurrection

Prior to 2005 I had created to King Tut inspired mandalas. By 2005 I wanted to create another one. This one is my interpretation of a amulet/necklace worn by King Tut and on display at the Cairo Museum. The center scarab in this case represents Tut being carried off to the afterlife in a boat. The cobras and other scarabs are there to protect him on his journey.
