Cosmic Sunflower by TheMandalaLady

I created “Cosmic Sunflower” with the intent of doing a simplified fractal…a recursive pattern, both inward and outward…think of what happens when two mirrors face each other.

The basic pattern contains an oval with 8 bars coming out of it. The pattern repeats in the upper left and lower left sections of the “sunflower”.

Even though I list this as digital, I initially created it the old-fashioned way…pencil and paper. I then scanned it in and traced it using a graphics tablet. Once it became digital, I could then invert the design to white and then give it a dark grey background.

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.
