Last November the amazing Angela Cartwright contacted me to see if I would be interested in having my work featured in the "Focus On" section of her and Sarah Fishburn's zine. Angela had seen a piece I had done for Connie Freedman as part of an art swap that Renee Troy had organized. (It is a World Wide Art Web, isn't it?) Of course I was extremely flattered, and above is the page of my work they designed.
**Warning: allow plenty of time to enjoy the labryinth of the art and talent you'll find at their sites.**
This is a close up of a Mother's Day mandala I did. I used a Hiro 700 nib and gouache.
For all you moms out there, Happy Mother's Day! I hope Sunday is a celebration of you. For many, Mother's Day can be a bittersweet day, and I think of you and know better days lie ahead.
The text around the mandala reads:
Mother's write on the hearts of their children what the world's rough hand cannot erase.
Go forth and flourish!
