Happy Spring! I am so looking forward to some warm weather! Beautiful sunshine here today, now we just need some warmth.

I would like to share with you one of my mandalas today. I have a lot of fun with my colour pencils and ink pens that I lay down over an acrylic layer. These works have a 'zen-tangle' type feeling and they are created in a meditative way - with a focus on one thing... awareness of the colour flowing onto the paper. I was influenced by a book I got out of the library full of illuminated manuscripts from the Middle-Ages. The little dragon in the lower left corner sneaked into the work right out of one of my favourite pieces...

Spirals are an ongoing theme in my work as well - I will tell you more about spirals and why I find them so compelling another day.

Stay Happy - I hope this blog post finds you well and peaceful...
