About a week before 9/11 occurred, I started doing a daily mandala idea sketch, just a rough idea to possibly develop at a later date.
On the day of 9/11 and over the next two days, my sketches were more of a cathartic nature, rather dark and sad. However by 9/14 I felt this sense of the country being united, that we were one country rather than 50 states. Also by the 14th American flags were waving everywhere.
So when it came time for me to do my daily sketch, the idea for this mandala appeared in my sketch book.
Mandala’s Message: “One Nation, Many People. One Flag, Many Cultures. One Ideal, and Ideas”
