Shine On w/Msg [greeting card only] by 

This is a design I had forgotten all about until I flipped through my first mandala sketch book while looking for a design I had yet to do anything with officially. Regrettably I have also forgotten what was motivation for this design. All I know is that when I spotted it, I immediately knew I had make it an official mandala design.

Normally I size my mandalas at 12" diameter. This one felt like it wanted to be large. So I opted to paint this one in watercolors at 30" diameter. The day I drew it out on the paper, I wondered about the colors I’d use. The next morning I woke up seeing just the green part of the painting done. In my mind it looked like green marble stonework. At least now I had a place to start. The rest of the painting just fell into place once I finished the green section.

Mandala’s Message: “As above, so below. One with the other. All ways as one. Always.”

In 1999 on a trip to Egypt, I began drawing my first mandalas. Throughout the region, I saw amazing patterns on almost every site we visited. My analytical mind loved the geometry of the Islamic and Egyptian art. My heart & soul loved their beauty & symmetry. After I returned, I saw patterns in everything around me. I translate these into mandalas. In 2000 I added meditation to the process so that I could fully explore their metaphysical natures while guiding me on my own spiritual journey.
